Program Notes

Blue River Breakdown is a fanfare for band that blends two motivic gestures: a typical brass fanfare and a high-energy big band shout chorus. It was written for and is dedicated to the directors of the UMKC [University of Missouri-Kansas City] Bands Steven Davis and Joseph Parisi for their continuous support of new music by UMKC’s student composers.
