Program Notes

Turn-of-the-(20th)-century music is featured in Concert in the Park. This pot-pourri of styles features waltzes, gallops, ragtime, and marches—types of music usually performed at an outdoor concert. Trumpet and clarinet solos are interspersed to pay tribute to the fine soloists of the time, such as Herbert L. Clark. An allusion to "The Stars and Stripes Forever" closes the work.

Concert in the Park was commissioned by the Quakertown Band of Quakertown, Pennsylvania, Richard Karschner, conductor in celebration of its 125th anniversary.
