Zivkovic International Summer Academy for Marimba and Percussion - ZISAMP 2006


Our  lessons, concerts, rehearsals, and parties.  
We had great & USEFUL fun! 

From August 27 - to september 2nd, 2006 a  "Zivkovic International Summer Academy  for Marimba & Percussion"  (ZISAMP)
 with Nebojsa Jovan Zivkovic took place in Castle ENGERS, GERMANY. 
The course was attended by 25 international participants from 16 countries!  Although course was in Germany, no one student was from Germany::))   Participants from USA, Mexico,  Bulgaria,  Holland, Austria, UK, Switzerland, Slovenia,  Australia, Japan, Korea, Argentina, Belgium, Luxembourg, Spain and Cuba,  came together and worked with Nebojsa Zivkovic  up to 10 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 5 days of master classes and chamber music practicing on marimba and percussion, the selected participants presented  two  public concerts in different German cities (Kaiserslautern and Kirchheimbolanden).  The course was sponsored by YAMAHA Europa, who sent  marimbas, vibes, xylophons and full load of concert percussion instruments.  ZISAMP is taking place only EVERY TWO YEARS , in every EVEN year. 
The next Summer Academy, is scheduled for LAST WEEK OF AUGUST 2008.  The number of ACTIVE partitipants will be reduced even more. Maximum 25 people will be accepted.  For more information on upcoming course see www.zivkovic.de/marimbacourse.htm
