Program Notes

The Heavens Declare follows the text of Psalm 19:1-6, conveying a sense of wonder and amazement at the majesty of the heavenly creation -- galaxies and stars, planetary movement, our earth’s atmosphere, and the motion of the sun across the sky.

The piece is a concert flourish opener, written to briefly showcase the capability of every section in the ensemble with energy, technique, varied colors, fanfares, and soaring melodies.

Composed in 2019 by Jeff Warner, The Heavens Declare was premiered to introduce the 2019 North Carolina 9-10 All-State Honor Band.
