Program Notes

Fear, anxiety, adrenaline, and a sheer rush of excitement all take center stage in this musical roller-coaster ride. Percussion simulates the sound of the lift hill before the ride takes off in an action-packed series of drops, turns, and loops. Eventually the riders get their hands up in the air, reveling in unabashed joy before the car coasts to a stop.

- Program Note by publisher


Thrill Ride was commissioned by the Veterans Elementary School Band (Endicott City, Md.) and their conductor, Tom Viets.
