At Creekside, we try to have at least two (2) Marimba Bands; for the 2019-20 school year, both will be for 5th grade students. These are auditioned ensembles that play 3-6 part songs, most of which are based in an African style using lots of syncopation and poly-rhythms; we may also learn some rock, classical, and jazz songs. Each group meets one morning a week before school. We present at least one school concert, may play at some school assemblies, perhaps participate in a Marimba Festival with other local groups and perform for the greater Issaquah community at both the the Sammamish Farmers Market (May) and the Issaquah Farmers Market (June).
