Programme Notes / Performance Details :

"Concerto for Marimba with Percussion and Choir" functions like any other concerto, showcasing the versatility of the marimba, but with choir in place of orchestra. Vocal and percussion performance are without a doubt some of the oldest musical traditions in the world. This work is the product of my vision to combine these two ancient art forms through a contemporary lens. The piece is in a standard 3-movement concerto form with the addition of a brief introduction: Introduction: Shout! I. Layers II. Memento III. Strike
