Program Notes

Shindig is a concert piece in one movement for solo horn and wind ensemble, commissioned by the Big Ten Band Directors Association. Godfrey states, “Though I did not follow a specific action sequence while writing it, I think of this music as something akin to a big barn dance. The soloist plays the braggart, the blow-hard (forgive the pun), continually sounding off, cutting in, and demanding center stage; the rest of the ensemble plays along jovially with all this, at times, giving over to it completely.”

- Program Note from Michigan State University Wind Symphony concert program, 18 December 2013
