Program Notes

Northpointe Fantasy begins with a short, legato introduction before moving to an opening section with a bold, memorable first theme in the trumpets which is continued by the upper woodwinds. The low brass which had been providing a solid rhythm accompaniment then get the lyrical second theme. Following a nicely contrasting center section in 3/4 which begins with a flute section soli the work recapitulates to the powerful opening theme, and dramatic ending.

Northpointe Fantasy was commissioned by and dedicated to the Bloomington Junior High School Band, Bloomington, Illinois, Spencer Gore, director.
