Program Notes

Ms. Giroux and Dr. Strauss [Andrea DeRenzis Strauss, conductor of Tara Winds] collaborated on the form and substance of this composition, written especially for the 69th Annual Midwest Clinic. Ms. Giroux writes, “The piece is fast with loads of woodwind runs, with particular attention to the Bb clarinet section, lots of dynamics, and an ending with madness over the top of a chorale setting. Enjoy the wild ride and pay attention to the clarinet section because their fingers will be just flyin’!”

- Program Note from Tara Winds concert program, 19 December 2015
