Program Notes

Two classic and well-known folk melodies are combined in this unique medley to create a fresh cross-cultural musical work. The familiar Korean folk melody Ahrirang, made famous in band literature by John Barnes Chance’s Variations on a Korean Folk Song, is combined with Simple Gifts, the Shaker tune used in Aaron Copland’s classic Appalachian Spring. The two themes are introduced early on by the clarinets and flutes, respectively, then each is heard independently with simple, yet appealing harmonizations. The two melodies merge toward the end in a symbolic “east meets west” combination of cultural themes.
