Program Notes

This work was commissioned by the Minnesota Symphonic Winds and premiered on a children's concert in April 1997 under the baton of the late Miles Johnson with Christine Sweet narrating. It is modeled after Benjamin Britten's Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra in that the purpose of the composition is to introduce the instruments of the concert band to the audience. College, community and professional wind ensembles have programmed the work on family concerts. The Minnesota Symphonic Winds have recorded the composition on their CD "Celebrating Twenty Years". The work has also been recorded by the Chamber Concert Band at Valparaiso University and by the United States Air Force Academy Band (formerly the USAF Band of the Rockies).
