Program Notes

New Era Overture (2010) was composed for the United States Air Force Academy Band (Colorado Springs, Colo.) and refers to the mixture of software, hardware, technology, and tradition in present-day life — the “new era.” The work is a mixture of styles that combines the rhythmic repetitiveness of the woodwinds with larger themes and gestures in brass and percussion that portray actual physical movement. The presence of a simple, hymn-like tune serves as a reminder of the extent to which the new era is rooted in the past and its traditions.
