This is my third work for marimba orchestra, and was written for the Celebrate Musser Festival at Kutztown Univerisity, PA in November of 2015.  It is a kind of concerto grosso style composition, featuring two marimba soloists with marimba orchestra.  The soloists for the premiere performance were Bob Becker and Yurika Kimura.  The orchestra was conducted by Gordon Stout.  The orchestra are written such that there are tutti and soli sections.  Bob and Yurika really like the composition, and I hope it receives lots of performances in the future (of course).

The recording contained herein is an mp3 from the Sibelius file, using Sibelius 6 Essential sounds.  For sonic clarity, the two marimba soloists in this file sound like a concert piano.
