Program Notes

Rob Grice's Portrait of an Old Country Town is a programmatic work depicting images of an early American community. The beauty of the countryside, the work involved in taming the great outdoors, and a small town festival celebration are all pictorial elements of the piece.

Portrait of an Old Country Town was commissioned by the Woodward Academy Middle School Advanced Band in commemoration of their performance at the 2008 Georgia State Music Educators In-Service Conference, Valerie Morgan, director.
