Program Notes

At Water's Edge was composed for the Northern Santa Barbara County Junior High School Honor Band and premiered in Santa Barbara, California, March 12, 2005, with the composer conducting. The title is in reference to the awesome Pacific coastal area surrounding Santa Barbara.

This composition was written to give young bands a positive experience with soft, calm and lyric music. The sound of the ocean should be heard at the beginning of the work when the rain stick gives way to the smooth sounds of an ocean drum in combination with an effect produced by the brass players blowing air through their instruments.
