Program Notes

Carefully written for young bands and rescored for bands with reduced instrumentation, this vivid work will bring a dynamic and exuberant flourish to any concert setting. The uplifting sounds of celebration reflect the energy and enthusiasm of young students everywhere and relay a positive message for the promise of tomorrow.

- Program Note from publisher

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.
