Program Notes

After a sensitive and effective statement of the famous carol medley there’s a quick segue into a distinctive rhythmic section featuring mixed meters. Based mainly on the 3/4 + 2/4 time sequence, this powerful and contemporary sounding variation is sure to impress and entertain your audiences.
