He has performed with the Oklahoma City Orchestra, the Boston Symphony and the Boston Pops and has held teaching positions at Oklahoma University and Oklahoma City University, Boston University and the Boston University Tanglewood Institute.

 The basic principles of composition are derived from practices in the island of Bali, Indonesia.  The vibraphone plays the principal melody, which is continually elaborated by the interlocking parts of the marimba and two xylophones.

            III. Danca

            IV. Despedida (Farewell)


The Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra was written in June and July of 1986 in Brasília and is dedicated to the composer's son Marcelo. The work was originally written for marimba and string orchestra and was premiered in the USA the same year with the Manitowoc Symphony Orchestra in Wisconsin.
