Program Notes

A Far Cry from Fairview was commissioned for the 100th anniversary of the Butler University Wind Ensemble.

By means of a G-rated double entendre, the title A Far Cry from Fairview can mean the piece is drastically different than what might have been heard at a Butler band concert in the 1920s, but can also suggest that there are faint whispers and distant memories of the past. Post-WW1 enrollment boomed and the university board decided to move the original Irvington campus -- in 1928, the original Fairview amusement park area became the new (and current) home for the Butler University campus community.
