The UMass Marimba Bands and Ensembles are a collection of percussion ensembles at the University of Massachusetts - Amherst.

Under the direction of Thom Hannum, these groups offer unique opportunities for students to play, teach, and write music that interests them. Students get to perform music from an enormous variety of genres. Most of the music they play is written/arranged by current and former members. A lot of the day-to-day instruction is done by grad students who also perform in the groups. And every spring, the groups get the opportunity to travel to other schools to perform and teach percussion clinics.
