Program Notes

For those of you that are unaware, I was a band director for 12 years. During my time in that occupation, I created many works that had specific educational goals, but would also fit into our concert repertoire as, what I hoped, would be engaging pieces for both the players and the audience. I always struggled to find music that introduced new concepts in achievable, yet meaningful, ways.

Following Fanfare for the 16th Empire, Warriors of the 16th Empire is the second in a series of works intended as a tool to develop young players’ abilities to correctly time, articulate, and perform sixteenth notes.

In this work, one should imagine a legion of warriors under a blazing sun, holding their weapons aloft, ready for battle. Are they ancient? From the future? Monsters? Robots? That is up to the player and listener to decide.

Peace, Love, and Music
