Program Notes

Commissioned by the Florida Bandmasters Association District 14 High School Honor Band, Palm Beach County, Florida, Tammy Roggen, Chair. Dedicated to the memory of Ubaldo Montesino.

- Program Note from score

Danzas Cubanas is a set of three original and connected dance-like movements celebrating the joy and energy of Afro-Cuban music and people of this island nation. The opening conga sets the mood, followed by a gentle and alluring son-salsa. The closing dance is a fast-paced mambo.

- Program Note from Iowa State University Symphonic Band concert program, 20 April 2018
