Program Notes

Block M march refers to the familiar logo of the University of Michigan. Though written when the composer was only 22 years of age, this march features a mature style, with contrasting brass and woodwind figures, prominent use of syncopation, and a a driving tempo with a dramatic opening and conclusion.
