Program Notes

Experience the colorful life on the High Plains through this vivid and lively musical portrait of mid-America. The spirited introduction exhibits a brisk and joyful nature with the vastness, beauty and loneliness of the open prairie portrayed as the piece unfolds. The panoramic vista then closes with an energetic recap of the opening material.

Prairie Dance was composed for the Emporia State University High School Honors Band in Emporia, Ks.
