Program Notes

Written in an exciting programmatic style, this piece is based on folklore surrounding the derailment and crash of a turn-of-the-century passenger train in North Carolina. The descriptive and creative writing of Ed Huckeby make this story "come alive" through the sounds of the train and driving rhythms which imitate the locomotive. With creative changing meter, syncopation and dramatic rhythmic drive, contrasted with the flowing melodic lines of the introduction and interlude, this piece is a real "winner" for concert or contest performance.

The Phantom Train is dedicated to Mr. Larry Beeby by the Fairview (Oklahoma) Band Boosters, in recoginition of his retirement after 23 years of faithful service as Director of "The Pride of Fairview".
