“SCM first started in 2014 as an attempt to perform with some friends in a small marimba concert. We soon realized that there was a real need for marimbists to have more performance opportunities and to belong in a community that can provide some support for their careers. I really believe it’s thanks to our friends and family that we have been able to continue our activities to this day and slowly make each one of our dreams a reality.” – Christina Cheon, Executive Director
