Program Notes

Curtain Call was originally composed for the Dallas Brass as part of a collection of works entitled Brass Grooves. Though originally written for five brass players and percussionist, it really comes to life in this sparkling concert band setting, which features every section in the band. Conceived as a tribute to all the great finales, encores and reprises written for the stage, Curtain Call is a flashy, energetic flag-waver.
