Clair Omar Musser and the Marimba Symphony Orchestra by Marg Holmgren (Spring/Summer 1978 Percussive Notes)

by Rhythm Scene Staff | Jan 12, 2023

“Many of us have heard of the legendary marimba symphony orchestras that were so popular during the 1930s and ’40s. Indeed, there are many around who participated in those groups and have wonderful stories to tell of their experiences. But for those of us who were not fortunate to hear those groups, our chance is coming! PASIC ’78 will recreate the famed Marimba Symphony Orchestra after auditioning to find 50 of the finest young marimbists available.”
