Program Notes

August in York represents two things that are important to Charles Long, for whom it was written: jazz and York, Pennsylvania. It references the famous jazz tune, during which the soloist has the opportunity to play an improvised solo, if desired. Commissioned in honor of Charles J. Long in 2008.
