Program Notes

Experience the sounds of the American West! Inspired by music from the great cowboy movies of the late 1960s, this powerful composition uses a large battery of percussion to bring the effect to life. The American frontier is depicted through the lightly scored opening, followed by a full and flowing middle section, to its powerful conclusion.
