Program Notes

Inside every person, there is a place where creativity dwells. Gears turn, dreams flow, and ideas spark into life. Imaginarium is the place that every creative person goes to, again and again, to find their muse, flesh out ideas, and to exert change on the world around them.

Commissioned for the 2015 Association of Texas Small School All-State Band, Imaginarium is comprised of four sections: Sparks where ideas begin to germinate; “The Cloud Factory” which represents the day-dreamy zone where one imagines endless possibilities: Here, There be Monsters... is that moment of panic or nightmare that all creative people feel when self-doubt sets in and the task seems to monumental to overcome; a brief recapitulation to Sparks before Eureka!, the idea is fully realized!

This piece is dedicated to all of the dreamers who see more in the world than is actually there, who see possibilities where others see only dead ends, and who believe in creation rather than destruction.
