Program Notes

A new programmatic composition that depicts the marvels of modern aviation. The opening represents the take-off and the majesty of the climb into the heavens. But after reaching cruising altitude and soaring peacefully above the clouds, the plane must descend through a strong turbulent storm. All ends well as the pilot regains control of the aircraft and heroically returns the band and your captivated audience safely to the ground. A superior choice for any festival or concert performance.

Defying Gravity was written for the Sinclair Community College Community Concert Band to commemorate their 25th Anniversary, Kenneth Kohlenberg, conductor.
