We welcome back the RPO Marimba Band to our concert series! Described as “one of the Rochester area’s unique and notable treasures”, the RPO Marimba Band was established in 1979 and is comprised of members of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra’s current Percussion Section. Specializing in music written and arranged for the melodic percussion instruments, the RPO Marimba Band primarily features ragtime xylophone pieces and novelty music from the early decades of the 20th century, many Latin and jazz tunes. The band performs on two marimbas, vibraphone, steel drum, drum set, and various percussion instruments.
