Program Notes

Testament was commissioned by Educational Tour Consultants, Inc., of Winchester, Virginia, in commemoration of twenty-fifth anniversary of the Six Flags Festivals. During their history, the Six Flags Festivals have earned the reputation of a 'national' contest, with over 1200 school bands, orchestras, and choruses competing each year in a Six Flags Festival.

Testament is a festival piece, titled as a tribute to the contribution that the Six Flags Festivals have made to music education over the past twenty-five years. The work was premiered on October 16, 1988, performed by the U.S. Navy Band in Washington, D.C., and conducted by the composer.
