ARE SOME INFORMATIONS FROM THE LAST COURSE:
From August 21 - 26, 2002 a
"International Course for Marimba & Percussion"
with Nebojsa Jovan Zivkovic took place in Castle
The course was attended by 30 international participants from 11
countries! Although course was in Germany, only 3 students
were from Germany itself::)) Participants from USA,
Canada, Mexico, Italy, Holland, Sweden, UK, Switzerland,.
Slovenia, Austria etc.. came together and worked with
Nebojsa Zivkovic up to 11 hours every day. Each active
participant had to prepare at least two works for marimba or for
multipercussion solo. However, after the course and
practicing were over, the most famous German beverage
was also "allowed", than GOOD spirit of the whole
group and friendly atmoshpere was also one of the intended (and
sucessfuly achived!) course goals. After 4 days of master
classes and chamber music practicing on marimba and percussion,
the selected participants presented three public
concerts in different German cities, ending in Frankfurt.
The course was sponsored by YAMAHA Europa, who sent some 10
marimbas, vibes, xylophons and full load of concert
percussion instruments. After such enormous sucess (the
limitation of Active participants had to be changed because
of too many application) decission has been made to repeat
the course every two years. So the next NJZ-Marimba and
Percussion Course will be in August 2004. See www.zivkovic.de/marimbacourse.htm
