Program Notes

Heavily influenced by Native American sounds, Etowah pays homage to the great Cherokee and Creek nations that once thrived in modern day Georgia. The opening sounds echo the spirit of the ancient city of Etowah before the music builds, taking the listener back to when the city thrived. Including a large battery of percussion, innovative harmonies, and interesting textures not normally found in young band music, this is certain to be a huge favorite!

Etowah was commissioned by the Hightower Trail Middle School Bands, Marietta, Georgia, Andrew Cole and Fred Norton, Directors.
