Program Notes

A short and vibrant concert overture that resonates with the essence of the American spirit. While the work consists primarily of original material, there are brief hints and echoes of The Star Spangled Banner that add to the character and noble quality of this exhilarating work.

- Program Note from publisher

Commissioned by the 2006 South Jersey Area Wind Ensemble, Linwood, New Jersey, Keith W. Hodgson, Conductor.

- Program Note from score

Composed in the summer and fall of 2005 for the South Jersey Area Wind Ensemble of Linwood, New Jersey, American Jubilee is a short concert overture for band in ABA form. With the exception of a short quote from our National Anthem, the piece contains only original melodies. The composer has strived to reflect the hard working and strongly religious character of the people of southern New Jersey past and present. The slow middle section is reflective and represents the passing years of settlement life. A contrapuntal section follows (with the National Anthem quote), and leads to the final triumphant theme and a lively, exciting coda.
