“My journey with SCM started as a student who was inspired by the outreach of the organization. It was great to see a local group of hard-working folks create an inspirational community for marimba lovers! I’ve always loved SCM’s mission to inspire and support the marimba community, while sharing the beautiful sound of the marimba.” – Joanna Chen, Operations Manager
