Program Notes

Heroic and valiant, Concert Overture for Symphonic Band is an award-winning composition by Finnish composer Sauli Saarinen. Beginning with brilliant brass fanfares, the piece sets the tone for an exciting concert opener. Active percussion and flourishing woodwinds embellish an exciting theme, a somber and poignant section offers distinct contrasts, and the heroic brass theme returns with a thrilling race to the finish.
