Mr. Galvic has written a number of compositions for solo/ensemble percussion, choral/small orchestra, and full orchestra. His percussion ballet The Three Furies was first performed in a concert setting by the Eastman Percussion Ensemble, and it is listed in the Encyclopedia of Percussion, 2nd Edition (2007) by John Beck (Routledge Publishing) as one of the compositions that has made a “significant contribution to the percussion ensemble literature from its inception until the early twenty-first century.”
