Program Notes

This vivid fanfare features rousing brass motives, dynamic woodwind flourishes and active and exciting percussion. The piece is focused around E-flat major with modal harmonies throughout.

I wrote this piece as a dedication to my high school alma mater and my former high school band director, Clinton Marshall, for whom I owe my passion and music education.

Accolade was commissioned by the Perry Hall High School [Nottingham, Md.] Music Department, and the piece commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the school's opening.

- Program Note by composer

The term "accolade" is defined as an expression of praise, and this powerful musical presentation was written with just that in mind, a tribute to young students everywhere. The uplifting sounds of the spirited celebration reflect their energy and enthusiasm and relay a positive message for the promise of tomorrow.
