Program Notes

Embark on a thrill ride that progresses through different stages of motion. Sections include Perpetual Motion; Locomotion (based on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway stationed in the town that commissioned the work), and Commotion. This final fugal section, based on a minor version of the opening theme, constantly builds and transforms as the work moves toward a fierce conclusion.

Motion was commissioned by the Fannin County Band Booster Club for the Fannin County High School Band (Blue Ridge, Georgia), Elden and Wanda Moates, directors.
