Program Notes

An outstanding composition begins as a tone poem depicting the Illinois River and the peaceful Indian tribes that lived in the area. The tempo of the music quickens as the tribe seeks refuge from their enemies and then the piece reaches it’s climax at the peak of the battle. The music subsides as the ill-fated Indians are finally starved into defeat.

Legend of Starved Rock was commissioned by the 25th Annual Illinois Valley Band Festival, Tom Rice (Streator), Stephanie Bartholomew (Mendota) and Donna Martin (Ottawa).
