Program Notes

Deep Dish is an engaging new piece for band inspired by the quintessential pizza in Chicago, from where composer James M. Stephenson hails. Deep Dish serves up a bluesy feel with challenging chromatic passages and saucy harmonies, and gives percussionists the opportunity to create their own sounds with kitchen utensils.
