Program Notes

Composer Thom Hasenpflug wrote A Silent City of Rocks at the prompting of Patrick Brooks of Idaho State University, to whom it is dedicated, as well as to other Idaho band directors.

This programmatic work is based on Hasenpflug’s impressions of Idaho’s City of the Rocks National Preserve and state park, which is located just two miles north of the Utah border in south-central Idaho. Well known to climbers, campers, and hikers alike, the City of the Rocks affords all who visit it an exceptional, off-the-beaten-track wilderness experience.
