Program Notes

This highly programmatic concert opener gives you a front-row seat in the viewing stands for this high-speed thrill ride. The opening section starts the engines, sets the pole position, and then the race is on. There's a brief slowdown for a collision and caution flag, but then it's full throttle as the race resumes with a wild dash to the finish line, closing with a triumphant victory lap.

Commissioned by and dedicated to the Folly Quarter Middle School Band (Ellicott City, Md.), Andrew Spang, conductor.
