Program Notes

This reflective five-minute work for concert band elicits familiar qualities from impressionistic and film score composers, giving the ensemble a modern sound with only moderate difficulty. A simple melody emerges from the subtle texture of the ensemble and evolves through various tonal colors and timbres while giving players an approachable performance challenge. The music works especially well as a segue between openers and featured works or as a great addition to any varied program. The accompanying video heightens the experience and helps the audience connect with a more modern work.
