Program Notes

The work is dedicated to the memory of Martin Mailman, longtime professor of composition at the University of North Texas (UNT), and a wonderful composer of band music. On my frequent trips to Denton, Texas, Dr. Mailman would always make the opportunity to meet and take me to lunch. He was always kind and gracious to me. In one of our meetings he told me about a work he wrote for the UNT Wind Symphony entitled Secular Litanies. The motive for Down East Fanfare is taken from the opening measures of Secular Litanies. Later that year I performed it at a CBDNA East Conference with Dr. Mailman in attendance.

The work was commissioned by the Maine Music Educators Association in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Maine All-State Band. I have had wonderful musical experiences in Maine over the past two years, and the title of the work comes from the "nickname" for that area of the country, as well as a well-known magazine extolling Maine's virtues.

Down East Fanfare was begun in July of 2002 in Gorham, Maine, and completed in Creekside, Penn. in May of 2003.
