Program Notes

Wine From These Grapes was commissioned in 1992 by Kim Campbell for the Dallas Wind Symphony in memory of their conductor and founder, Howard Dunn. The title is taken from a collection of poems and sonnets by Edna St. Vincent Millay. The title was chosen because of the superior teaching and leadership of Howard Dunn; the wine from his grapes are the students and the great musical legacy that he left.
