Program Notes

Uncle Sid bears a family resemblance to a puny nephew, a little ditty born of one long and feverish collegiate night. It was a night of passionate desperation, the fruit of which was a namesake who never quite lived up to his family's unreasonable expectations. His Uncle Sid, however, lives life on a much grander and appropriate scale. Sid is crass, obnoxious, and uncaring of anyone's feelings. Traveling the wedding/bar mitzvah circuit, Sid performs a hora for the horrified crowds. Sure, Sid sounds like fun, but wait till you get to know him. Uncle Sid first reared his ugly head in public on October 10, 2002, introduced by the UNLV Wind Orchestra, with the composer conducting. Sid is dedicated to my brother, with familial understanding.
