Program Notes

Silver Light! was commissioned by the Rocky Mountain Commissioning Project for the 11th Annual Colorado State University-Pueblo Festival of Winds, and is dedicated to Dick Mayne, for his illustrious life as a conductor and educator.

This work opens with an energetic fanfare, featuring a lyrical trombone solo representing Dick’s influence, before flowing into the theme from Where the Columbines Grow, one of the two official state songs of Colorado. The word "silver" was specially chosen to celebrate Mayne’s retirement, and "light" was inspired by Matthew 5:14, “You are the light of the world...”
