Program Notes

A colorful and invigorating work which captures the spirit of the great American Southwest. From the frolicking cowboy exuberance to the gentle lyricism of the expertly crafted melodies this concert/contest selection sparkles with character and energy.

Southwest Saga was commissioned by the Southwest Junior High School Band, Lakeland, Florida, Frank Howes, director.
