Program Notes

While traveling by air, the composer was able to view three distinctive scenes of the city of Miami, Florida, that are all musically portrayed in this significant and creative work. High energy, driving tempos, memorable themes, Latin percussion and contemporary harmonies all combine to create a remarkable and exciting three movement suite.

- Program Note from publisher

Commissioned by the Franklin Heights High School Bands, Columbus, Ohio, Mark Fox and Mark Sturm, directors, and dedicated to the memory of Tiffany Loukinas.
