Program Notes

The symphonic band work Champ-de-Mars, Par Jour de Lumiere ("Champ-de-Mars, By Day of Light") was inspired by a large, abstract stained-glass design that was integrated into the station above Montreal's Champ-de-Mars metro stop in the 1960s. The composition won the Michael Hennigan Memorial Composition Prize at Oklahoma State University.

Written in 12 continually connecting tableaux, Champagne’s colorfully orchestrated composition captures the impressions of light refracted by Marcelle Ferron’s fresco.
