Program Notes

Circus music. Circus McGirkus music. Carnival music. (not Carnival Cruise music)

What can I say? I can't seem to escape writing fun, wacky, somewhat-askew music these days. (It has nothing to do with the premature change into the new millennium -- it probably has more to do with a plentiful garlic supply.) Having spent a lot of time writing "deep, serious" pieces of angry music, it's quite a lovely feeling to compose happy-go-lucky stuff. Little "announcement" fanfares abound, as do a number of quirky clown bits. A few surprises around the corner, and if we're lucky, maybe the Bearded Lady and The World's Largest Beet will make an appearance. Perhaps, if we're extra well behaved, even that unbelievable trio will show -- you know which ones I mean:

The Butler Buffet Boys!!!!!

Better than the Reptile Boy! Better than the Moon Rock! Better than Alien Fur!

Step right up!
