Program Notes

Diamond Reflections was composed to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the U.S. Air Force Heritage of America Band at Langley Air Force Base, Virginia in 2016. The work progresses from a somber, militaristic intro to a jovial symphonic ending, exploring various ensemble colors along the way. The U.S. Air Force Song is suggested throughout the work by the use of an ascending (and later, descending) minor-third interval – a play on the lyrics Off we go… The Air Force Hymn, Lord, Guard & Guide, makes a more obvious appearance, namely the trumpet solo at measure 46 and the horn soli at measure 123.
