and Germany , 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

group and friendly atmosphere was also one of the intended (and successfully
achieved!) course goals. After 6 days of master
