Program Notes

A ‘blue streak’ usually refers to something fast or quick. For example, there was a train named the Blue Streak that for years was the fastest scheduled freight train in the U.S.

This original piece for the Austin Symphonic Band is a fast, lively overture from the fanfare-like introduction to the final coda, with one brief stop along the way. There are two thematic ideas presented in the opening exposition; in the closing section they are performed simultaneously because we’re in a hurry.

Blue Streak is written for and dedicated to the Austin Symphonic Band, and its musical director Richard Floyd.
