Program Notes

This work is full of rhythmic excitement with some form of classic flare, which embodies the overwhelming personality and career of Dr, Julian E. White, Distinguished Professor of Music (retired), Florida A&M University. There are several quotes within the body of the music that highlight his thoughts and teachings, such as Part Two, No. 2, from the Unisonal Scales and Chords method book. The lyrical portion of the piece is the hymn How Great Thou Art, which is Dr. White's favorite hymn. With an energetic and heroic structure, this work will engage the audience as well as the performer.

Commissioned by the Florida A&M University Bands & Delta Iota Chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi, Tallahassee, FL. Dedicated to Dr. Julian E. White, Distinguished Professor of Music (Retired), Florida A&M University
