Heartland Marimba Quartet, the premier touring ensemble of the Heartland Marimba organization, has appeared in over 160 concerts across the country since its creation in 2016 by acclaimed soloist Matthew Coley. Through its programming choices, HMQ offers a platform to the music of American composers and continues to expand its repertoire with works from composers worldwide. The four distinctly creative forces of Ujjal Bhattacharyya, Matthew Coley, Marco Schirripa, and Hannah Weaver combine to create a virtuosic and electrifying ensemble. With its mission of reaching a wider audience and increasing appreciation for marimba music, HMQ develops and disseminates the classical marimba art form in both academic and community contexts. HMQ has performed with the Dubuque Symphony and Minot Symphony Orchestras, the Puget Sound University and University of Nebraska-Omaha Wind Ensembles, and the University of Arizona and Millikin University Percussion Ensembles. Through assistance from New Music USA, HMQ has been actively commissioning seven new quartets by women composers since 2021. For more about the group, please visit www.HeartlandMarimbaQuartet.com.
