Program Notes

The Town Band celebrates the spirit of the many community bands that exist across the United States. I have played in various community bands throughout my life, always appreciating that wherever I go there is usually a community of volunteer musicians who are playing for the joy of it and will welcome another into their ranks. Often there are specific pieces or styles of music played in these bands. These pieces tend to lend themselves well to outdoor summer concerts at the pavilion in the town square, or the band shell at the local park. This piece tries to capture some of these typical sounds and musical tropes, as well as highlight each section of the town band, giving each instrument family a moment to shine.
