Program Notes

Wau Toma (Good Land) is a tone poem created as a commissioned work by the students and director of Parkside Middle School in Wautoma, Wisconsin. The composer was invited to meet with the Eighth Grade Band of Parkside Middle School and design a composition that would provide an opportunity to create a unique work together. During this dialogue many ideas were expressed, but the unanimous choice was to celebrate the naming of their community, Wau-toma, which, in the Menominee Indian language, means "Good Land". The work includes paraphrases of "Amazing Grace" and "America the Beautiful".
