Program Notes

One for All, a fanfare for wind ensemble, was written for the California State University, Hayward, (CSUH) Wind Ensemble I’s Fall tour 2000. One of my main goals for this piece was to use compositional and orchestrational techniques that would grab and hold the attention of an audience of young musicians. The title of the piece was chosen in part because of its instant recognition as the second half of the Musketeers’ motto and thus setting the mood of the piece by conjuring up feelings of excitement, adventure, triumph, and redemption. The phrase itself, “One for All,” implies an unselfish attitude and dedication to helping others.

This piece was written to showcase the incredible musicians in the CSUH Wind Ensemble and their “One for All” attitude and approach to every piece of music they shared with an audience. I would like to extend my thanks to the conductor of the CSUH Wind Ensemble I, Tim Smith, and CSUH professor of composition Dr. Frank LaRocca for their guidance and patience, and to the ensemble's bass trombonist, Richard Lee, the most unselfish person I know and to whom this piece is dedicated.
