Program Notes

Among the Stars is an exciting composition. The dotted rhythms and interesting syncopation will coax the developing young band into sounding like a much more advanced ensemble. The lyrical middle section begins with a brass quartet, providing an opportunity to showcase some of your outstanding players.

- Program Note from publisher

Commissioned by the Hilliard Weaver Middle School Band by their director, Mrs. Angela Davoll, this work pays homage to the life and career of John E. Crumley, who served as the Hilliard (Ohio) High School director of bands from 1958 to 1964 and 1968 to 1995. His tenure there fostered and developed a band program that remains among the top complete programs in the country. John lived a long and full life, dedicated to his family, students, and his church, and he was an accomplished conductor, brass musician, private teacher and adjudicator. His high school bands gained state-wide recognition for their many years of excellence in the Ohio Music Education Association, and his legacy of excellence continues to be a driving force in the Hilliard schools' expending music programs.

The lyric section of the work is based upon an 1844 hymn tune called Maitland – a chosen hymn sung at his memorial service on April 15, 2018. The brass quartet represents the countless private brass students he mentored and inspired during more than 60 years of private teaching.
