Program Notes

In 1969, I was teaching music at Cranleigh School in Surrey, England. I was asked to write a work for orchestra and produced a four-movement piece entitled Concerto for School Orchestra. I have now reworked the music for wind band and re-titled it Perchance to Dream. The piece has a slow introduction followed by a loose sonata form movement in which the introductory material is re-introduced.
