Program Notes

Master composer Claude T. Smith graced the band world with many wonderful pieces, and this classic continues to be one of his most performed works. The opening theme sparkles with rhythmic vitality and harmonic devices that still sound fresh today. The contrasting Andante segment is lush and tender before returning to the fast main theme.
