HME is a touring ensemble of Heartland Marimba, primarily doing concerts in June/July and December. The members constitute various accomplished artists and apprentices from the heartland. The music spans many genres including classical arrangements, jazz, tango, ragtime, Americana, pops, holiday favorites, and circus. HME artists also serve as the teachers of the HM summer workshop for youth and community, SoundW.A.Y.S.

Each summer the HMEnsemble has a rotating and dynamic membership. Artists in HME include accomplished performers from the heartland, apprentices from around the nation, and HMQuartet members.
