Program Notes

Written in tribute to a young musician who loved his Mexican musical heritage, Robert W. Smith has created this concert/festival work that will be a standard in the young band repertoire. Inspired by classic band literature as well as the unique flavors of the Mariachi culture, Fiesta La Vida is a celebration of life and music.

Fiesta La Vida is dedicated to Bryan Cheney and the Houston Junior High School Band of Hobbs, New Mexico in loving memory of Manuel.
