Program Notes

This Broadway-style work paints a glamorous picture of American life and popular music of the 1920s. Based on a night “out on the town,” the music is boisterous, powerful, and moves through a series of key changes that add energy and vitality to the music. A laid-back middle section features a sultry alto sax solo before the music becomes more playful in nature. The entire ensemble returns for the final curtain call.

- Program Note by publisher


As to programme note I'm not really very good at this. The following is as much a general instruction to the ensemble as a programme note.

The music reflects a glamorized notion of American society in the nineteen twenties, particularly how a night out may have been. As with a lot of popular music of that period it should be played with swagger and panache.
