Program Notes

E for Eternity was composed in memory of Nathan Luke Ray, a tubist who had always dreamed of playing in the Fresno State [California] Bulldog Marching Band. Nathan died in a car accident on his way home from realizing that dream - performing at his first game as a Fresno State student, a game nationally televised on ESPN. This piece was written by his teacher; the title came from his classmates, in memory of this vibrant young musician.

The musical material alternates between flowing melodic lines and powerful ensemble climaxes, then quickly subsides to softly floating phrases. These contrasts reflect the contrasting emotions that one experiences in tragedy such as this.
