Arioso was written for and dedicated to the Hayden High School Concert Band, Topeka, Kansas. A slow, expressive, sustained work, it was written to help develop intonation, expressiveness, and phrasing, and for the limited instrumentation of that ensemble. (It has been rescored for a full instrumentation.) This piece can succeed with a limited instrumentation, and most certainly by bands without the instruments that were addeD. ( 4 minutes 30 seconds).

Assemble the Minions was originally composed for and dedicated to the members of the Shawnee Mission Northwest High School Class of 2013 orchestra program. This group had a special bond with their teacher, composer Jeffrey S. Bishop, and the term "minions" became attached to this talented group of hard-working and often mischievous musicians. From the hard-driving rhythms to the almost comical middle section, the piece has a buoyancy and playful character reminiscent of Saturday morning cartoons.

You won't find many works at this grade level that successfully communicate the feelings of calm and grandeur with such striking effect.  The combination of musical percussion, nontraditional effects and sweeping waves of sound create an impressionistic, mature work; and while written to be accessible by young players, it would be very effective for bands at all levels.

Bailey Switch March is dedicated to the beginner band in Picayune, Mississippi. The title comes from the city's original name, as it was a switching location for trains leaving New Orleans heading north. While it was written to retain a stately quality almost like a processional, it can also be played successfully at a faster tempo for an exhilarating and impressive performance.
