Program Notes

Frank Simon moved from Ohio to Tucson, Arizona, in 1955. Instead of retiring as planned, he was invited to become professor of brass instruments and honorary band director at the University of Arizona. As an expression of his gratitude, he composed Here Comes the Band for that university.
