Program Notes

If you liked Swearingen’s incredibly popular Brookpark Overture, this English folkstyle piece should fit your band to a “T.” It features a majestic fanfare, a quick and lively main theme interspersed with some clever lyrical writing and a pretty middle section in 3/4.

Ashton Overture was commissioned by and dedicated to the Hannah Ashton 7th Grade Band, Reynoldsburg, Ohio, Bonnie White, director.
