Jane Boxall ~ marimba ~ Concert Bookers’ references

Children’s concert at Urbana Free Library, Illinois (2007)

“Jane's concert for our children's series was captivating, enthrallingchildren as young as one with her rhythmical and melodic forty-fiveminute performance. Listeners who have never considered the marimba as a solo instrument will be true believers after hearing Jane. If she still lived in the area, I would book her again withouthesitation. She is a top-notch musician with a top-notch personality,bringing warmth and passion to her performances. Jane is a trulygifted artist who I have no doubt will someday grace some of theworld's best performance halls.”

To Whom It May Concern:

Jane Boxall is an exceptional marimba player I was privileged to present for two consecutive years in the Boneyard Arts Festival’s Late Night spACE, an immersive arts event which featured live music, projection arts, dance, performance, installations and visual art. One objective in curating this event for 40N88W --Champaign County Arts, Culture and Entertainment Council-- was to present together a dynamic range of eclectic local and national performers. Ms. Boxall’s superbly executed and thoughtful programs of commissioned works and modern scores for solo marimba proved to be an engaging highlight for audiences experiencing in the same event the likes of the prog-rock band vonFrickle and Vernon Reid’s Verntronics AV in 2008, or Bradford Reed and his Amazing Pencilina in 2007. I highly recommend Ms. Boxall for your festival.
