Program Notes

Think about spies... espionage... secret agents. Michael Story has conjured up this original work that will tickle those thoughts and images in your players and audiences alike. This fun work has two optional accelerandi that add to the excitement while reinforcing the concept of watching the conductor. Teaching, learning and fun -- it’s a great mission!

-Program note by Cinco Rancho Junior High School Honors Band


Intended to convey images of secret agents and spies, this delightful piece would be ideal as a fun change-of-pace number. Playful melodic material, rhythmic variety, tempo and meter changes, and effective dynamic contrasts all contribute to the sense of espionage and intrigue.

-Program Note from The Instrumentalist, August 2014, p. 44
