Program Notes

Summer Nights is a celebratory state of life through Latin-American music. Composed as the third movement of Postcards from the First Coast. Summer Nights is dedicated to the First Coast Wind Ensemble of Jacksonville, Fla., under the direction of Artie Clifton.

Influenced by the vibrant cultural blend of the Sunshine State of Florida, the music captures the energy of Florida night life from the "First Coast" of Jacksonville to the "South Beach" of Miami and beyond. Feel free to move and dance while we feature the percussion, trumpet, trombone, and saxophone sections. ¡Viva la música! ¡Viva la vida!
