Program Notes

The 'pioneer spirit' is not just limited to the brave men and women who forged into the unknown wilderness of our vast country during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Today, it also embraces risk-taking and innovative thinking, two traits that move mankind in a constant forward direction. Moreover, these are two traits that the Lampeter-Strasburg, Pennsylvania, School District tries to develop and reinforce in its students - traits that they can utilize as they move forward into their respective futures.

"The Pioneer Spirit" was commissioned by and is dedicated to the Martin Meylin Middle School 6th Grade Band of Lampeter, PA, and was premiered by this fine ensemble in May, 2009, under the baton of the composer.
