Program Notes

Febris Ver (spring fever) is a variegated post-minimalist landscape that evokes the sensuous essences of spring. The aromas, colors, flavors, and aural delights of Earth's perennial rebirths are interwoven with chorale-like textures, first introduced by the brass, then playfully tossed about by the rest of the ensemble.

The work was composed for the College Band Directors National Association (CBDNA) 2012 Eastern Division Conference at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, where it was premiered by the IUP Wind Symphony led by Jason Worzbyt.
