Program Notes

Imagine, if you will, the perfect spring day. The air is cool but the sun is warm on your skin. The sound of newly awakened fauna chatter about the lush, verdant landscape. The blue sky seems to go on for miles. How could you feel anything but happy on a day like that?

Hillside March is a concert march for young band with a sunny, yet quirky, disposition. It draws inspiration from British marches, but filtered through my own particular American lens. The work starts as a pleasant walk in the countryside as we take in the beauty all around us. A darker theme creeps in later (a nod to the style of Ralph Vaughan Williams and his fantastic English Folk Song Suite), but a chorale melody answers it with an overwhelming sense of hope. We finish our promenade as we began it, whistling and strolling along our country path.
