Program Notes

Honoring the career of an Illinois band director upon her retirement, this gorgeous work comes off as an epic musical journey that is full of surprises.

An oboe soloist is featured in the lyrical yet emotionally powerful opening section. A spirited jig in 6/8 time takes over after the slow introduction. As the jig unwinds and comes to its conclusion, the piece unexpectedly shifts to 4/4 featuring energetic technical passages in upper woodwinds, then joined by trumpets. Building toward a final climax, the piece shifts back to a fast 6/8 buildup, then ends in an exciting way as the second fast theme makes a dancing curtain call.
