Program Notes

Kindred Spirits was composed at the request of Jonathan Sindler, Director of Bands at Cockeysville Middle School in Maryland. It is dedicated to the memory of John, Tamara, Gregory and Benjamin Browning. The latter two were brothers who played in the Cockeysville Middle School Bands, and the four family members were murdered in 2008.
