About the Competition

The Great Plains International Marimba Competition was founded by Dane Romano in 2013 to provide an avenue for musical growth of young marimbists around the world through educational and competitive experiences. This competition seeks to contribute to the quality and evolution of marimba performance through fostering high-level marimba performances, presentations and individual feedback by world-class marimbists, and an annual composition competition. In 2019, Oklahoma Modern Music Collective absorbed the competition, allowing our team to continue to build on the excellent work done by GPIMC founder Dane Romano.
