Program Notes

Euphoria in its development reflects those rare moments where one is totally immersed in the unabashed vibrancy of life. The swirling textures and rhythmic interplay of the score reveal a state of being unencumbered by lingering everyday concerns; a state of embracing the carefree wonder of living, so common in our youth, where all things are possible.

Euphoria was commissioned by the Liverpool High School Bands under the direction of Michael J. Coldren, Joseph L. Filio, Jr., and James R. Spadafore. The premiere performance was given by the Liverpool High School Concert Ensemble, Joseph L. Filio, Jr., conductor, at the Liverpool High School auditorium, Liverpool, N.Y., on May 31, 2001.
