Program Notes

A St. Patrick's Day Toast is an Irish-themed medley to celebrate March 21st. The first half of Scott Boerma's work is made up of exact excerpts from the Joseph Flummerfelt arrangement of Danny Boy for SATB choir and Percy Grainger's Irish Tune from County Derry for band. The second half is comprised of original material by Dr. Boerma.

This work was commissioned by Steve Davis expressly to conclude the University of Missouri at Kansas City Conservatory Wind Ensemble's performance, on St. Patrick's Day 2017 – including a leprechaun and his pot of gold -- at the CBDNA Annual Convention in Kansas City.

- Program note by composer and Dave Strickler


NB: Because this work contains extended exact quotes from the Flummerfelt and the Grainger copyrighted compositions, to avoid violating copyright restrictions, ensembles performing it must also own those two compositions.
