Program Notes

The composition energizes the band and listener as the horns, trumpets and low brass lead the fanfare to the opening melody featuring the trumpets and trombones. The horns follow with a vibrant repetition of the theme, which leads to the B section. The luscious melody of the Rubato section features the clarinet with solo opportunities given to the alto saxophone, flute, bassoon and oboe. The B section continues with the romanticism of the main theme with the entire band. The alto saxophone solo transitions back to the A section. The countermelody in the upper brass propel this work to a dramatic finale.

This joyous composition was commissioned by the Guymon (Okla.) High School Band, Jerry Toler, conductor, and premiered on January 29, 1977.
