Program Notes

Here's a wacky, fast-and-furious barn burner reminiscent of a circus march or "screamer." It was written as musical celebration and displays dazzling technical facility and humor. Cartoon-like trombone glissandi, flying woodwinds, dizzying brass and laughing rhythms create a zany and thrilling off-the-wall highlight tune.

- Program Note from publisher

Dedicated to the Naden Band of the Royal Canadian Navy, Victoria, BC, Lieutenant (Navy) Matthew Clark, Commanding Officer and Director of Music. In celebration of their 75th Anniversary.
