Program Notes

This proud and energetic overture is brimming with catchy melodies shared by nearly every section of the band. The bold opening fanfare leads to the brisk lively allegro section highlighted with a variety of contrasting textures and vivid harmonic colors. A contrasting lyrical section provides an opportunity to exhibit expressive musical playing skills before the main theme returns for an exuberant finale.

Commissioned by the South East Iowa Bandmasters Association for the Junior High Honor Band 2017

- Program Note from score


This commissioned work includes engaging melodic material for nearly every section of the ensemble. Rhythmic accuracy when playing syncopated rhythms, consistent styles of articulation throughout the ensemble, close observance of dynamic indications, and attention to tone production when playing short eighth-notes are necessary considerations in achieving an outstanding performance.
