Program Notes

Homage was commissioned by the Grand Ledge High Bands and Music Boosters, Grand Ledge, Michigan, in honor of retired band director Michael Kaufman. Michael Kaufman built an iconic band program at Grand Ledge over the course of the many years that he was director of bands at Grand Ledge and positively touched the hearts and minds of hundreds, if not thousands of students.

The work pays "homage" to Michael by using two musical themes that strongly influenced his life and musical career. As a horn player, Michael's favorite work for the instrument was the Romanze movement of the 3rd Horn Concerto in Eb Major by Mozart. As a father, Michael had fond memories of his daughter playing simple American folksongs while studying violin using the Suzuki method. One of those memorable songs was Lightly Row. Both of these themes, plus a countermelody, are used to unite the work and come together, simultaneously, in a "tour de force" finale.
