Program Notes

Backwater Catfish is a southeastern prelude with some local flavor, written for The University of Florida Wind Symphony, David Waybright, conductor. The treatment is more like an expanded big band than a symphonic wind section, with brief solo figures tossed around the ensemble over a bed of percussion and low brass.
