Program Notes

Commissioned for the 1996-1997 Thunder Bay Jr. High School 8th Grade Concert Band, Alpena, Michigan, Raymond R. Reynolds, Director.

The Maelstrom derives its title from an aquatic event of enormous intensity. Although the term is used in other settings, it refers to a whirlpool of immense size and strength, constantly circling upon itself while drawing into its center all who see and hear its activities.
