Program Notes

Shadows is an emotional piece demonstrating loss through music. The flowing lines of the solos heard throughout the piece are full of expression and sadness, yet have great beauty. A solemn yet gorgeous concert selection.

- Program Note from publisher

Shadows was commissioned by the Redford (Mich.) Thurston High School Bands, directed by Edward J. Lucius. The work was written in memory of Ted Smith, a former band director in that district. A devoted advocate for kids and a passionate musician, Ted was extremely active in the Michigan School Band & Orchestra Association and played his trumpet in several community bands throughout his life. I was fortunate to have gotten to know Ted later in his life, and he was one of the most sincere, warm-hearted people I have ever met. Wherever he went he left behind soft, comforting shadows that will remain forever.
