08.17.2005 // Mark Ford at Belgium Marimba Competition

Dynasty USA artist and Coordinator of Percussion at the University of North Texas, Mark Ford was a guest artist for the Belgium Marimba Academy hosted by Ludwig Albert in Sint-Truiden, Belgium from July 23-29, 2005. Along with Mark, Japanese marimbist Momoko Kamiya and Albert taught and performed for marimba students from around the world. Students that participated were from Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Belgium and the United Kingdom.

The end of the academy was capped off by a finale concert attended by Dynasty USA's distributor Jean Paul Ratajczak. Mark Ford and Dynasty USA are in the process of developing a new five-octave marimba to be released later this year.
