Program Notes

Composed in 1957, Little Suite for Band was written for and dedicated to Richard Otto and the Lyman Hall High School Band (Wallingford, Connecticut). Each of the three short contrasting movements (Prelude, Ballad, and Festival) vary most notably in the style and articulation that they require.
