Program Notes

Imagine a host of angels singing praises and flying and diving around a divine light shining bright in the sky. Such an image comes to mind when listening to this exuberant work. The joyous celebration is interrupted by a powerful chorale before taking off into another dance section.

- Program Note by publisher


Angelic Celebrations is a piece for concert band intended to invoke the feelings of joy, beauty, and exultation. The piece is highly rhythmic with many dance-like motifs, and it is punctuated and textured by very active percussion. The joyous celebration is interrupted by a powerful chorale before taking off into another dance section. One should envision a host of angels singing praises, flying and diving around a divine light shining bright in the sky.

This piece was commissioned by a consortium of schools organized by the 2013 Southern Maine Junior Academy, George Shabo, camp director, on the occasion of its 20th anniversary, and premiered on July 20, 2013.
