Program Notes

This great composition is intended to capture the integrity and intensity of Thomas Edison. Opening with an alternating woodwind quintet- brass choir section, it quickly moves into a fanfare and theme exposition. Warm rich harmonies underscore a lyric trumpet solo which begins the slower middle section.

Pagent of Light was commissioned by and is dedicated to the Edison High School Wind Ensemble, Milan, Ohio, Greg Georgiafandia, director.
