Program Notes

A marvelous contest piece that follows in the tradition of his very popular “Excellentia Overture.’’ Starting with the broad fanfare introduction, the composition is built on a simple fugue starting in the woodwinds which eventually winds through the different voices of the band. A lush and expressive middle section provides just the right amount of contrast.

Twin Oaks is dedicated to the memory of my grandmother, Ethel Jones.
