Program Notes

This international potpourri of children's melodies was commission in 1964 by Robert A. Boudreau, founder and conductor of the American Wind Symphony of Pittsburgh. Since 1975 the band has presented concerts sailing the waterways of North America and Europe from the deck of its own floating arts center, Counterpoint II. During that time Boudreau and the C.F. Peters Cop. have commission hundreds of works from many of the world's major composers.
