Program Notes

Summer Scenes was commissioned in 2003, by the United States Air Force Band of Mid-America, Steven Grimo, commander.

The piece depicts three scenes, based on the three months of the summer season. Movement 1, June: Carousel at the Fair conjures images of county fairs as the summer begins. Movement 2, July: Sailboats on a Blue Lake creates a beautiful and peaceful day, relaxing over the water. Movement 3, August: Evening Thunderstorm utilizes clever compositional techniques, which recreate the ideas of thunder, lightning and raindrops.
