Program Notes

Procession of the Academics was commissioned by the Illinois State University Office of Advancement, Illinois State University Office of Student Affairs, Illinois State University College of Fine Arts, Illinois State University School of Music, and the Illinois State University Bands honoring the Illinois State University Sesquicentennial Celebration.

Being neither an Illinoisan nor an official member of the ISU family, I was honored and a bit daunted to be asked to write a new academic processional march for the sesquicentennial celebration of Illinois State University. And so, with trepidation, and with Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance looming large in the rear-view mirror, I offer this small music work in honor of the students, faculty, administration, and staff of this great university.
