We Wish You a Coolcat Christmas is a fun little arrangement for very young players, another in the continuing series from Gary P. Gilroy that gives young band students a fun holiday selection while developing their skills. The percussion parts contain several optional parts in case there are plenty of players, and carefully chosen notes and rhythms make the work very achievable while featuring virtually all sections of the band on the melody at one point or another.

Commissioned to commemorate its 20th anniversary season, this work was written for the Nebraska Wind Symphony, Omaha's community band, in 1997. It is in traditional overture form, with a bold introductory theme in the horns answered by the trumpets. The material that follows presents the main theme in solo voices followed by the entire band. Contrasting material follows, leading to a recapitulation and eventually to a jubilant coda. While not intentionally programmatic, the title of the work does reflect the band's geographic location.

Commissioned by the East Stroudsburg Area School District, this work displays the effort and determination it must have taken to establish this community in the Pocono mountains with wall upon wall of rock to be blasted and great masses of earth to be moved. It opens with a broad, somewhat dissonant statement representing the settlers' first intimidating encounter with the mountain, followed by a faster, insistent theme as the area is settled and developed. An impressive work for young bands that makes us aware that truly great things are done "when men and mountains meet."

Here is a piece certain to be a success! It is so musical it will be enjoyed by good high school, college, and adult bands; yet it is easy enough that a good junior high or middle school band can be successful with it. Employing a joyous, rhythmic triple meter, the piece gets off to a frollicking good start. The opening section leads to a beautiful, slower, melodic section, and the work concludes with vigor and vitality as it romps to an exciting conclusion.

Whiplash  is a piece written for young band that explores rhythmic and motivic development in a thrilling and exciting manner. The title has a double meaning, referring first to the breakneck tempo, and second to the sharp report of the whipcrack through the piece. The combination of rhythm, energy, and changing meters working together make this a thoroughly exhilarating experience for students, conductors and audience!

It is easy to imagine the quiet, beautiful river, with its great trees and lush vegetation, flowing downstream. This music depicts a fascinating journey, at times gaining momentum as the stream twists through the various bends, and increasing or decreasing in speed as the river channel gets deeper or shallower, or gets wider or narrower. A beautiful, romantic journey that eventually ends as serenely as it began.

This uplifting and inspiring work pays tribute to the promise and the possibilities of tomorrow.  In one aspect the title refers to the expansive horizon of the physical world; on a more personal level, it alludes to the wide horizon we see in the promise of our future.  An opening fanfare is developed through driving rhythmic figures, which is fulfilled in the work's broad, uplifting conclusion.

Wild Wyatt! was written as the second composition of a two-part series. The first in the series, Sand Castles,was originally titled Sand Castles for Noah, and was written by Dr. Gilroy for his godson, Noah Price. He then decided that it also might be fun to compose a fun tune for Noah's little brother, Wyatt, who is as wild as they come! With his long, wild and blazing red hair, Wyatt is one of the most intense and energetic youngsters the composer has ever known. The result is a concert band work with great passion, intense energy, and wild interruptions, well-suited to be called Wild Wyatt!

Windy City Holiday was composed specifically for the Fresno State Wind Orchestra for their performance at Orchestra Hall in Chicago, Illinois for the Percy Grainger Wind Band Festival. The composer, Gary P. Gilroy, serves as the Director of Bands at Fresno State and conductor of the university's premiere wind band, the Fresno State Wind Orchestra and Dr. Gilroy wrote this work in honor of the students who raised the funding needed to be a part of the Festival. The group took a five-day trip to Chicago and as such, had a "Holiday" of sorts in the famous Windy City with Dr. Gilroy on his first major trip as the Director of Bands with the Wind Orchestra. The work is one of the more challenging compositions Gilroy has written in some time and he wanted to compose an exciting and energetic opener for this historic concert. He also wanted the work to represent the fun and excitement his students would be exposed to in Chicago so it was important that the opener be playful and light at times.
