Program Notes

This is the first piece John Mackey composed during quarantine. After months of not being inspired to write, the melody came to him for this piece. Initially, he was afraid that he had accidentally plagiarized Frank Ticheli, so he played the piece for him. Ticheli told him that it was not plagiarized and encouraged him to use it, hence the title, Let Me Be Frank with You. The piece is dedicated to Frank Ticheli.
