Something To Do With Grace (2014)
Something To Do With Grace is for a 5.0 solo marimbist and eight percussionists. Written for James Armstrong, and his All-Star High School Percussion Ensemble in Lancaster, PA, and soloist Grace Asuncion. With a good advanced level high school marimbist and percussion ensemble, this should be a very programable work, that audiences will find interesting and accessible. It is published by Keyboard Percussion Publications (www.mostlymarimba.com).
The partial recording here is from a concert on April 16, 2016 at Ithaca College, with Grace Asuncion on marimba, and the New Jersey Youth Symphony Percussion Ensemble, Dr. Ken Paiscik conducting.
