Program Notes

Based on the compelling mystery of the Lost Colony at Roanoke Island, this Robert Sheldon composition is a wonderful choice for either concert or contest performances. Exquisite writing for the woodwinds and skillful use of brass and percussion combine to make this one of this popular composer’s nicest pieces.

Lost Colony was commissioned by the North Carolina Eastern District All-State Band, Greenville, North Carolina.
