Program Notes

Jack Stamp's piece, for solo horn and wind ensemble, was inspired by a collection of photos [of the San Luis Valley, southern Colorado] that reflected many moods, with varied times of day and seasons.

"One photo made the valley look almost like a lunar landscape, and that is reflected in the introduction. The fast section represents the great expanse of the area and the freedom of nature. The waltz reflects the simple beauty of the valley with its various grasses and wildflowers. The hymn-like horn chorale is a nod to the Shrine of the Stations of the Cross," Stamp said.

He composed the piece for Adams State Director of Bands Dr. Angela Winter on French horn with the Winds & Percussion Ensemble.
