Program Notes

Daydream was written on a request from Miles "Mity" Johnson to be used as a quiet tune with the Festival Band at the 1989 St. Olaf College Festival of Bands. It is intended to be a musical daydream, with introspective sounds eliciting mood changes and shifting images. I hope to conjure up in the listener the sense one perceives when he or she "pulls out" of a daydream, returning to reality after a transient mental trip to places of flight and fancy. I conducted its premiere on November 11, 1989.
