PASIC is over and we are excited about the interview we did with Gordon Stout on Saturday. Look for it in the podcast feed on iTunes or check it out on the site. Today’s video features Gordon conducting the Marimba Orchestra from the 2007 PAS Day of Percussion (Joel Smales, host). The orchestra is playing Bolero by Eustacio Rosales. This piece was transcribed by Clair Omar Musser and was featured at the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair as part of the 100-piece marimba orchestra concert.

Have you heard any other large marimba orchestra pieces? What is your favorite? Leave a comment below.
