Program Notes

Afterburn is a piece for young concert band depicting the excitement and exuberant feeling of flight. When watching a jet in the sky, it's impossible not to imagine the rush the pilot must feel when kicking in the afterburners, that sudden burst of speed. This piece seeks to capture the many emotions a person may feel flying through the sky: Excitement at take-off, awe at the beauty of the earth, and a burst of joy when the afterburners hurtle them through the sky.
