Program Notes

Whaaack! is a concerto for percussion solo and band commissioned by John Madden and the Michigan State University Symphony Band, leading a consortium of other bands. I intended that the concerto arrangement would be playable by good high school bands and most college bands as well.

Each movement features the soloist on only one instrument: First movement: Hi-Hat Cymbal ("Cymbal Pleasures"); second movement: Tam-Tam ("Gong with the Winds"); and third movement: Bass Drum ("30-Pound Bass"). The soloist is required to play very softly at various times in all three movements, requiring amplification. The solo part employs both standard and extended techniques.
