Program Notes

Inspired by the English proverb, "From little acorns do mighty oaks grow," Bruce Broughton fully embraces this idea with his colorful nine-minute work for six-part adaptable wind band and optional percussion starting with the seed of six flexible parts and developing into a full-scale piece that is simultaneously playful and serious.

Performance Notes

Each part is transposed and playable by a multitude of wind or keyboard percussion instruments while maintaining the spectrum of sound we have grown to love about the wind band.
