Program Notes

The word “zoom” took on a new meaning during the pandemic [that started in 2020]. Meetings, classes, social gatherings, and holiday celebrations took the form of online video conferences and were generically called “zooms.” Those of us in the musical profession often had to resort to makeshift, substitute forms of ensemble performances that often resembled these gatherings.

One upside for me was a weekly zoom hang that developed with four of my closest friends (all university band conductors) from across the country. One of those friends is Jamie Nix, for whom I was commissioned by his former graduate students to write this piece, in celebration of his tenth year as director of wind ensembles at Columbus State University. A common theme in our weekly chats was our unbridled enthusiasm (and impatience) to get back to what we love: making live music with our students. All of us have felt like we’ve been feverishly revving our engines behind the starting line, breathlessly waiting to see the green flag fly, knowing that the checkered flag awaits on the other side. Well, start your engines … because here we go … full speed ahead!
