“Still my favorite timpani solo!”   – Tracy Wiggins (March 2024)

Nancy composed this four-movement piece in 2002 and dedicated it to timpanist Frederic Macarez for his 44th birthday. It is about 6:00 in length, at an advanced level (including intricate, fast tuning changes), in alternately lyrical and grooving/"pop" styles. 

It was selected as the timpani test solo piece for The New Zeland Brass Band National Championships held in July 2023.
