Program Notes

As the title suggests, the work is a celebration of life’s conquering obstacles, specifically of the composer’s own personal battle against cancer. Written for the Upper Sandusky High School (Ohio) Wind Ensemble and with the thanks from the composer for the support and opportunity to compose this piece during a very difficult period of time, Rejouissant! opens with a slower dramatic fanfare in the brass and percussion. The simple but forceful melody is repeated in several forms throughout the piece, including the beautiful and melodic middle section.

- Program Note from publisher


Réjouissant translates from the French as "joyful."
