Program Notes

This stately overture is a captivating concert work for young band. It's fresh and extremely musical, from its brass and percussion opening through the driving, highly melodic development section.

- Program Note by publisher

This work is a dazzling overture from Arkansas composer Charles Booker. Written in a traditional ABA format, this work features the upper brass and woodwind instruments from the ensemble.
