Stealth for Bass Clarinet and Marimba was commissioned from John Burke for Canadian performers Sal Ferreras and Lori Freedman. It incorporates complicated rhythms, extended range and flutter tongue techniques. 

Gregg Koyle's Kumbengo refers to an interlocking pattern found in some West African musics. At first the parts are in a kind of imitative exchange then have their own roles within the work. 

Singing Wood: Interpretations on Four Woodcut Prints by Greg Danner is the inspiration for the title of this concert. The movements include: I Lake Louise, II Singing Wood, III Willows and the Moon and IV Sierra Skyscrapers.
