Program Notes

First the music depicts the calm, rolling waves, but then trumpet fanfares summon long-forgotten warships back to the high seas and their former days of glory. Warning bells clang, battles ensue and the music rises to an intense and powerful climax!

- Program Note by publisher


Ghost fleet, Op. 71, was written in 1999 for the District VII Junior High School Honor Band of the Virginia Band and Orchestra Directors Association.
