Marenje Marimba

Marenje Marimba is a youth musical ensemble which conducts classes in the unique Zimbabwean instrument: the Marimba.  Classes are available year round to both children and adults.  Besides offering classes, Marenje Marimba writes and performs their own compositions and can frequently be seen performing in Fredericksburg and beyond,  sharing the positivity and joy that emanate from this unique art form.  In 2014, Marenje Marimba started a “Kids teaching Kids” initiative where the students become teachers, offering marimba lessons to a varied group of beginner students of different socio-economic backgrounds, many of whom would not have had access to music classes of this magnitude.  Marenje Marimba also hosts various international marimba teachers who come to Downtown Greens to teach intensives on this art form.
