Program Notes

Both bold and dramatic, this new work by celebrated composer James Swearingen is sure to inspire your young students to aim high for that special performance. Comfortable ranges, accessible rhythms and well-marked parts all combine to create a magical opportunity for musical learning. The middle section, based on the hymn “All Creatures of Our God and King”, is expressive writing at its absolute best. A return to the main theme brings the creative composition to a highly charged and exciting climax.

As the Eagle Flies is dedicated to the Sixth Annual Winds and Percussion Camp held at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio. Angie Davoll, James Doudy, Nancy Youse, James Swearingen, conductors. The premiere performance of this work was presented on June 17, 2005.
