Program Notes

Sacred Spaces was commissioned by the United States Army Field Band, Colonel Jim. R. Keene, Commander, for the band's 2019 concert tour. The theme of the tour program, "Sacred Spaces – A Grand Canyon Celebration," was designed to commemoration the 100th anniversary of Grand Canyon National Park, America's most iconic natural landmark. The theme was to "celebrate the park by telling the stories of the many people who visit and live in this amazing place, through their own voices and narratives."

- Program Note from Teaching Music through Performance in Band. Volume 12


Sacred Spaces is no exception to Mackey's masterful manipulation of timbre as it combines elements of military fanfare with the soundscape of the wind ensemble.
