Program Notes

Convergence was premiered at the International Trumpet Guild conference in 2017 before it was adapted by the composer for the Portland State University Wind Symphony in 2019.

O’Loughlin begins with a bold fanfare statement that builds towards a light-hearted fast section. The theme is tossed from part to part in quick interplay; hints of the opening fanfare are sprinkled throughout the development before returning in full at the end.

- Program Note by Luke Camarillo for the New England Conservatory Symphonic Winds concert program, 9 December 2020

Convergence is a two-and-a-half-minute tour de force for wind band. The inception of the piece stemmed from a conversation with my friend David Bamonte who was preparing the Portland State University trumpet ensemble for a performance at the prestigious International Trumpet Guild conference in 2017. The trumpet ensemble version premiered to wide acclaim that year.
