Program Notes

In Days of Yore was written for the Case Western Reserve University Symphonic Winds as part of their homecoming concert program. The piece is a theme and variations on the university's alma mater, Shine On, Case Western Reserve. The composer's program notes are as follows:

In Days of Yore aims to capture various slices of life of a student at Case Western Reserve University. The work opens with the Shine on, Forever, the Alma Mater, the theme for this composition; the student's glimpse at CWRU's glory. From there, it progresses to the fun that is Orientation Week. The student waltzes through this time, making friends and experiencing college life for the first time (and hopefully avoiding the campus shuttle bus when crossing the street!) Progressing through their career, the student finds themself sleeping in on a Saturday morning while living in the Village. As there is a football game later that afternoon, the Spartan Marching Band is busy with their final practices. The Fight Song melody works its way into the student's dream...

In the final section, we rejoin the student during the chaos that is finals week. With the semester drawing to a close and with the countless hours wasted procrastinating, the student now has to rush to get everything in on time.
