Story

The work was commissioned by the Hawaii Youth Percussion Ensemble and was premiered at the 2016 National Conference on Percussion Pedagogy.  It is score for six percussionists: 1-bells and chimes, 2-vibraphone, 3- 4.3 marimba, 4-5.0 marimba, 5-5.0 marimba, 6-5.0 marimba, and is around six and a half minutes in length.  It is a work which emphasizes musicianship and musicality from the ensemble.  The second part of the work is a beautiful chorale.

The recording contained herein is an mp3 from the Sibelius file, using Sibelius 6 Essential sounds.  I apologize for the awful sounding rolls in the chorale part of this piece.  Sibelius doesn't enable them to sound real.  You will get the idea for now.
