Program Notes

Pegasus is the winged horse of Greek mythology that carried his rider into many daring exploits. Zeus rewards his heroism by making him a constellation in the stars. In Medieval times he became the symbol of wisdom and remains one of the most recognized icons in the world today. This fanfare for band is from The Spirit Sleeping, written in celebration of the life of Howard Dunn.
