Program Notes

Commissioned by Jay Hagy and the Canyon Vista Middle School Band for their performance at the 77th Annual Midwest Clinic with euphonium virtuoso Demondrae Thurman as the soloist, Where Dreams Dance was inspired by a poem by Dr. Antony Theodore titled There Is a Land Where Dreams Dance. The piece begins simply enough with the solo euphonium stating the main theme from which all other thematic material is derived. What follows are three variations, each accompanied by a different section of the ensemble -- first the dark and driving percussionists, followed by the warm and reverent brass leading us out of the darkness, to the gently flowing woodwinds leading us into the light. The tutti finale of the work features a brighter tempo, with the saxes and upper brass echoing the main theme while the soloist pieces together other motives heard throughout the piece in virtuosic flourishes, driving to a dramatic conclusion.
