Program Notes

The River Wye is one longest rivers in the United Kingdom and forms a part of the border between England and Wales. The river takes its source from the Welsh mountains and curves gracefully through some of the favourite landscapes of Philip Sparke. It crosses the picturesque cities of Monmouth, Ross-on-Wye, Hereford and Hayon-Wye. Tales of the River Wye tells of an afternoon on the banks of the river. The soothing melody is passed around the band and is accompanied by a lovely light waltz.
