Program Notes

Windsprints is a flourish of notes and rhythms meant to stir the kind of emotion one might experience during the running of a 50- or 100-yard dash. The piece gets off the "starting blocks" quickly and immediately involves numerous wind and percussion instruments in a technical "race to the finish line!"

Windsprints was written for students (that I absolutely adore) in the top concert band (Wind Symphony I) at Carmel High School (Indiana) during late fall of 2003. The band performed the work at the National Concert Band Festival in Indianapolis in February, 2004.
