For more than thirty years, unswerving commitment to music, musicians and the community in the Wisconsin River Valley and beyond.
Matthew Coley & Heartland Marimba Ensemble
Uniquely virtuosic percussionists
The season opens Monday, June 18 at Hillside Theater with the awesome percussionist, Matthew Coley accompanied by the Heartland Marimba Ensemble. Matthew is master of hammered cimbalom/dulcimer, and as Linda Shapiro from Chicago Press Review states, he “rips across the strings of the hammered dulcimer with abandon bordering on delirium!” There will also be a guest appearance by singer, Meredith Anding, the winner of last year’s RMF high school music award.
Make plans for the rest of the season:
We are delighted to introduce our new Artistic Director, Ivana Ugrcic. Iva is an accomplished flute player and she recently received her PhD in music performance from UW-Madison. Her ideas and enthusiasm are infectious and will surely result in wonderful programming for 2018 and beyond.
Congratulations to Brooklyn DeMinter, winner of the 2018 RMF River Valley High School Music award!
