Program Notes

Perfect for getting away from the usual march sound without excluding one from your program, this creative work adds several interesting twists to the familiar formula. Written primarily in the lydian mode, the piece opens with a soft and playful dance-like melody. A strong trio and surprise ending compliment this exciting composition.

Parade of the Jesters was commissioned by the All Madison County Band, Anderson, Indiana.
