Program Notes

A unique concert march, Vilabella was written while Williams was living in Houston and was originally titled Houston on the Move. When it was submitted to University of Miami Music Publications in 1970, Alfred Reed suggested a less regional title with a Spanish sound, since the work has a slight, but distinct, Spanish flavor. Williams agreed, Reed made some minor textual changes -- selecting the title from the name of a street in Coral Gables, Florida -- and “Vilabella” has continued to climb in the popularity polls ever since.
