Program Notes

Mangulina is based on traditional dance rhythms from the Dominican Republic. The piece conjures up images of frenzied dancing, a “primordial” jumping up and down and stomping on the earth, sending wishes and dreams towards the heavens.

Mangulina was commissioned in 2001 by Daniel J. Schmidt and the Mars Hill College Wind Symphony, John T. West and the Western Carolina University Wind Ensemble, Richard Clary and the University of Kentucky Wind Ensemble, and William A. Gora and the Appalachian State University Wind Ensemble.
