The Old Pond
is a 3-1/2 minute work written on the occasion of my grandfather's 90th birthday. Meant to capture and "reflect" on the many wonderful memories of fishing with my grandfather with bamboo poles and live worms in the old pond behind my grandparents' house in rural southern Virginia. Originally written for solo piano, I have scored it here for vibraphone and marimba.
