Program Notes

"When the Tears Fell" is a descriptive programmatic composition based on the 1838-1839 "Trail of Tears" historical trek of the Cherokee Indians from the Eastern United states to their new home in the Indian Territory (now Oklahoma). Written in four sections, "The Gathering", "The Journey", The Harsh Winter" and "Spring: A New Nation", it will challenge your band musically and is a tremendous choice for concert or festival performances.

When The Tears Fell was commissioned by Oklahoma Eastern District Band Director's Association for the 2005 EDBDA High School Honor Band.
