Program Notes

Land of the Midnight Sun is a cinematic, musical journey depicting the awe-inspiring expanse of the far north and the raw beauty of this magnificent panorama. The piece opens with the breaking of the ice and the warming of the land. Featuring a lyrical trumpet or flugelhorn solo, a rich and reverent brass chorale and a luminescent woodwind choir, the music ebbs and flows and builds to a celebration of light. Full of lush colors and sweeping melodies, this will give any ensemble an opportunity to soar.
