Program Notes

Bright Lights! is a fast-paced, high-energy showcase for concert band. A strong rhythmic pulse drives the tuneful melodies and technical flourishes throughout this joyful offering.

The piece was inspired by John Fesler, a tuba player and founding member of the Community Concert Band of Bloomington/Normal, Illinois. John was an electrical engineer, so the high energy of the tempo and the staccato eighth note "sparks" provide a nod to this remarkable man whose irrepressible personality served as a bright light to all who knew him.
