Program Notes

On May 10, 1869, the east and west coasts were linked by a golden spike in Promontory Point, Utah. The completion of the Transcontinental Railroad made cross-country travel and the anticipated riches of the West accessible to the masses. Ride On celebrates the wonder and excitement of train travel. The journey begins with an exciting melody as we pull into stations along the way to explore new destinations, and then are back on track to enjoy the majestic views of the American landscape.

- Program Note from score


All aboard! Take a seat and relax as this musical train pulls out of the station and rumbles down the tracks. You'll enjoy "hearing" new destinations and fascinating landscapes as you race down the tracks on this concert band express/
