Program Notes

Zing! was commissioned by Kappa Kappa Psi and Tau Beta Sigma at Baylor University. Zing! is the first work in a series of short band pieces that are inspired by catchphrases of different band directors who influenced the composer in high school and college. These phrases were often used during rehearsals to illuminate an image in order to create a special sound. Jim Croft, retired director of bands at Florida State University, inspired Zing's fanfare-like motives juxtaposed with lyrical melodic lines and "shiny" color emulate this catchphrase.
