About this Event

Jane is one of a very limited number of marimba artists worldwide to have developed an 8-mallet technique. She uses between zero and ten mallets simultaneously. Her 2012 album, Zero to Eight Mallets, has been enduringly popular with percussionists and non-percussionists alike. An album review in the Percussive Arts Society’s magazine Percussive Notes stated: “Jane Boxall’s CD is an eclectic mix of 100 years’ worth of music masterfully performed on marimba…Throughout the recording, Boxall’s performance is consistently excellent.” Of the 0-8 mallet concert program, composer and percussionist Brian Johnson opined: “it is highly interesting, entertaining and intelligent.”

Jane is deeply committed to the development of art music for percussion, and continues to seek and create innovative and adventurous programs. In 2013, Jane was the recipient of a grant from the Vermont Community Foundation, which enabled her to undertake the inaugural “Portable Percussionist” tour on foot from Canada to Massachusetts. Jane commissioned local composers to write “portable” concert pieces then hiked the Long Trail through the state of Vermont, stopping along the way to perform solo percussion recitals. Composer Dennis Bathory-Kitsz commented: “Jane Boxall's Portable Percussionist was a brilliant presentation. She held the audience spellbound with the simplest of materials -- rocks, sticks, pots, and even the zippers on her pack. One composition student later said, ‘My mind was completely blown. I have to re-think everything about composing’."

Currently, Jane is touring internationally as a concert artist, session drummer and clinician. Jane plays and endorses Vic Firth sticks and mallets, Coe Percussion marimbas and District Drum Company snare drums.

‘A quintessentially natural performer. . . Incredible presence. Her body sings with movement and pure joy. She bowled [us] over with her musicality and her extramusical capacity to communicate.’
