Evelyn Glennie playing the marimba with two mallets
Evelyn Glennie & Sioux City Symphony Orchestra | Bruce Miller

“Glennie spiced it up with a forceful approach to each percussive invention. The marimba was the appetizer, bringing the audience to the table. A spread of instruments (including a triangle, a ratchet, maracas and tambourines) became a palate cleanser before a vibraphone main course and a snare drum dessert were served. The musical meal was filling and invigorating. The piece was, too. Because Daugherty sampled others’ work he was able to give the audience immediate entry into the music. Glennie pulled them in and wowed.” – Bruce Miller
