Program Notes

This stunning composition by Robert W. Smith is actually a full symphony in smaller proportions. The piece was composed to commemorate the Battle of Bad Axe, the historic last Indian-American battle fought east of the Mississippi River. Written in four descriptive movements entitled Foreshadows, Warriors, Carnage, and Elegy, the piece evokes powerful sounds and imagery through contemporary scoring techniques while being technically accessible to most concert bands. Unique percussion effects combined with creative scoring provide an experience that your band and audience will not soon forget.

Symphony of Souls was written for the Students of the Western Wisconsin Honors Band, representing the school districts of Brokwood, Cashton, De Soto, Kickapoo, La Farge, North Crawford, Westby and Viroqua.
