Program Notes

Inspired by the beautiful and bountiful Chesapeake Bay in the Maryland and Virginia areas of the United States, Jerry Brubaker begins this odyssey on a quiet morn, with sounds of gulls riding the winds above gentle waves. The sections of this suite are entitled Chantey, Power, and Sail and Festival. With nautical flavorings throughout, Chesapeake is a celebration of nature's gift to all who live on, work on, or simply enjoy the waterways of our great nation.
