Program Notes

Commissioned by and dedicated to the Laing Middle School Band, Mount Pleasant, North Carolina, Miller Asbill, conductor. Premiered at the 1995 Mid-West International Band and Orchestra Clinic.

-Program Note from score.


Imagine a pirate ship at full sail. A rollicking adventure with swashbuckling pirates -- from finding their sea legs on board to plundering other ships to moments of quiet introspection -- provide the extramusical idea for this cleverly scored, contemporary composition.
