Program Notes

First Light is Mr. Ticheli’s 40th work for concert band but his first at the Grade I level — an artistic process he found both challenging and stimulating. First Light depicts an early-morning adventure on a river raft. After a brief, light-hearted opening, the music glides into a calm section suggesting a gentle river journey at dawn. A rustic, dance-like section follows: the sun rises high, the river awakens, the currents pick up — white water! After a vigorous climax, the music returns to its carefree origins. The river is once again calm as the journey draws to a close.

-Program Note by the Westlake High School Wind Ensemble
