Program Notes

Originally written for orchestra, Courage for Winds is a bold, powerful work, rhythmic and melodic work with underlying snare drum military-like heartbeat. Opening melody from the brass is taken over by the woodwinds and then the saxophones. The work has been called inspiring and heartfelt. It is particularly suitable for patriotic programming.

An outgrowth of my battle with breast cancer, Courage for Winds speaks to the strength in all of us to overcome adversity in our lives.
