Program Notes

In three lush and haunting musical landscapes, the composer celebrates all the timbres and voices of the complex, colorful machinery of the contemporary wind orchestra.

Wind Symphony No. 1 was composed for a commission from the Waukesha Area Symphonic Band for a benefit concert which celebrated the 20th anniversary of The Women's Center of Waukesha, Wisconsin.
