Program Notes

Gregory Mantone was an all-state and all-eastern euphonium player who grew up on Long Island, New York. He was majoring in music at Ithaca College when a tragic car accident took his life. He was the product of the Mt. Sinai School District, a small district on Long Island where his father is still the director of music and applied arts.

As with any piece of this nature, it finds its form through a wealth of emotions. In this particular case, I was asked to explore music of a lyrical nature that would become more uplifting as it developed -- and so began the process of writing Forever.... In many ways, the title seems incredibly appropriate as it implies that the piece will continue to be uplifting long after the music ends.
