Program Notes

The College of New Jersey commissioned Sally Lamb McCune to composer a fanfare celebrating 100 years of music at TCNJ. Dr. McCune incorporated TCNJ's alma mater into the composition

- Program Note by College of New Jersey

Pocket is a fanfare named for its various associations -- something small, a confined space or form, a "pocket" score, or being "in the pocket" (both a jazz idiom and a football term). Musically, Pocket pays homage to TCNJ by incorporatng a small, altered fragment of the colleges alma mater, which appears at the beginning and end of the piece against an isorhythmic accompaniment in the keyboard and percussion. The accompaniment is also linked to the main theme of the work.
