Program Notes

Commissioned by the University of Miami, this three-movement work covers the full gamut of emotions, and has already been performed by numerous all-state and district bands. The short opening movement establishes one of the main themes in the work before coming to a soft conclusion. The second movement can easily be performed on its own with its beautiful lyrical melodies and powerful emotional impact. The third movement makes use of themes heard throughout the other movements before coming to a grand conclusion.
