Program Notes

In baseball, stealing home plate is an extraordinary event—a mental battle of the player’s mind that either ends in ultimate failure or ultimate glory. With a fanfare style, Stealing Home begins with the excitement and anticipation of the game. The ebb and flow of the game are represented with an energetic buildup throughout the music. As the plays unfold, the hopeful baseball player waits for the right moment. When the game is on the line, a moment appears in the distance, like a spark igniting. He seizes the opportunity and throws caution to the wind. He goes for it, stunning everyone in the ballpark by stealing home plate.

Stealing Home was commissioned by the Cockrill Middle School Honors band and their director and avid baseball fan Gary Williams for their performance at the 70th annual Midwest Clinic, 2016.
