Program Notes

Legendary composer, arranger, and author Rayburn Wright is responsible for initiating the storied jazz program at the Eastman School of Music, and was also a composer for film and television. His masterful setting of Shaker melodies includes the familiar Simple Gifts, along with The Happy Journey and I've Set My Face for Zion's Kingdom. Used to feature a separate brass quintet or with members within an ensemble's brass section, this is truly a memorable setting adapted by current Eastman Wind Ensemble conductor Mark Davis Scatterday.
