Programme Note:
As a part of the commemoration of the Lethbridge Centennial in 1985, 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 footstep as a prominent performer. This piece allow both to demonstrate their prowess on marimba as well as a full battery of other percussion instruments.

This original version of Collage was accompanied by String Orchestra with Piano. I was requested to arrange the work for performance by the University of Calgary Wind Ensemble featuring the same soloists. This version was written in 1986.

Premiere Information:
31/10/1986 University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta; Alberta Band Association Conference; Linda and Sylvia Pimentel, Soloists; Provincial Wind Ensemble, Vondis Miller Conducting
