On May 29th Coffin School will host the Maine Marimba Ensemble for the day. The first grade classes will each participate in a 20 minute workshop with Jacob Wolff of the ensemble. They will learn about building marimbas, the music that the marimbas play, and about the marimba’s connection to Zimbabwe. The students will see and possibly play much larger versions of the instruments we use in the classroom throughout the year. The day will close out with a performance for the whole school by the entire Maine Marimba Ensemble. This amazing opportunity was made possible by a grant from the Brunswick Community Education Foundation(BCEF).
Please visit their website to support special projects in Brunswick schools. And thank you very much to BCEF for helping to bring such an amazing group to Coffin School!
