Program Notes

Colorful harmony and creative scoring highlight this four-movement suite for concert band. Great melodic writing utilizes unison rhythm scoring, comfortable ranges, and limited technical demands to make this a very engaging and accessible work. Zit may be performed as a full suite or stand-alone movements.
