In addition to composition, Ms. Mayne studied orchestration and conducting with the brilliant film music composer Ernest Gold. She played utility percussion and just a tad of timpani in college and community symphonic bands and wind ensembles absorbing the delightful nuances of those instrumentations. And being that her instrument, the piano, is the one which most resembles an orchestra, all of the above led her to greatly enjoy composing for orchestras and bands. Her large ensemble works are:
Christmas Overture for Orchestra 6:00 minutes
2 Fl., 2 Ob., 2 B-flat Clar., Bsn., 2 F Horns, 2 Tpt., 2 Trb., Perc., Bells,
