Program Notes

A work aimed at college and professional wind bands, or mature high school groups. Departures is the last original piece I wrote while I was still a member of the US Air Force Band -- so it commemorates my departure from the band (and the military) after a 20-year career. I started out with the intent of making a few stylistic departures as well -- trying out some musical tricks I don’t often use. What I found, the farther I got into writing the piece, was that old habits die hard. But I do love how the piece turned out.
