Programme Note:
As a part of the commemoration of the Lethbridge Centennial, I choose to feature instrumentalists not usually given solo billing; i.e. percussionists. Dr. Linda Pimentel was not only a well-known performer on marimba, but also a Professor of Music Education at the University of Lethbridge. Her daughter, Sylvia had already followed in her mother's footsteps as a prominent performer. This piece allow both to demonstrate their prowess on marimba as well as a full battery of other percussion instruments. The piece also exposed the community orchestra to various contemporary scoring techniques.

Commissioned by: Lethbridge Symphony Association

Premiere Information:
