Program Notes

Century Shouts was commissioned by the Neighborhood Music School of New Haven, Conn., on the occasion of its centennial, for the NHMS Wind Ensemble, Mark Gahm, music director.

It is music 'of the city,' an urban march. Its backbeats reflect a dash of Latin rhythms. Its melodies are accompanied by the clangs of metal and wood. Progress through the piece resembles progress through the neighborhoods of the city – some highly congested areas alternate with areas of space and lightness. Rather than celebrate the centennial with a regal fanfare or martial overture, this tribute shouts out praise with raw energy, as with a revival meeting in which participants are overcome with rapture! Hear the metal; hear the neighborhoods. Hear the concrete; hear the city. Hear the rhythm. Hear the people -- all dancing through the day!
