Program Notes

In this dynamic concert opener, Rick Kirby incorporates the normally hymn-like strains of America (My Country, 'Tis of Thee) into a fast and energetic fanfare. The actual melody is stated only once in its entirety, and many liberties are taken with both melodic and harmonic elements of the original.
