Program Notes

Dances on the Golden Shore was commissioned by the All-Shore Intermediate Band Directors Association (NJ) to commemorate the organization’s 50th anniversary year. Cast in three contrasting sections, the work is both celebratory and reflective in nature. In the outer sections, the composition relies heavily on strong, syncopated rhythms and colorful orchestration in order to create the impression of a celebratory dance. The lyric middle section is slightly slower and gently flowing, representative of a nostalgic look back on ASIBDA’s half century of providing wonderful opportunities for the music students of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
