Program Notes

Spirals of Light was commissioned by the South Central District Bandmasters Association of North Carolina for the 2006 9—10 All District Band, Blair Smith, director and coordinator. The work is celebratory in nature and uses the many colors of the modern wind band. A rousing fanfare motive, a ubiquitous oscillating figure, and an Irish folk-style melody provide plenty of variety for the achieving ensemble.
