Program Notes

This piece, one of hundreds of successful original concert band works by Frank Erickson, is a suite of three brief movements. The three movements investigate harmonic structuring, contrasting moods, and styles as the work progresses from a simple opening to a dramatic conclusion. Revered as one of Erickson's most approachable works for developing bands, it remains on contest and festival lists nation-wide.
