The decidedly religious overtones of this work bear a strong resemblance to the sacred melodic content in the wonderful hymnbook The Southern Harmony. Occasional offbeat diversions from the main theme allow a natural energy to alter its character. Quasi-religious chordal passages and lighthearted comic sections lead to the joy and excitement of the extended finishing coda.

This pulsating composition transforms the various attributes of electricity into musical sounds. Reverberating ostinatos in the bass line represent crackling bursts of current while intricate moving lines of woodwinds and mallet percussion reflect the motion of electrons darting about. Adding to the overall effect are sounds of intense lightning strikes provided by thick and explosive low brass chords while the percussion section generates electrical energy sounds throughout.

Even one hundred years after his death, the patriotic themes in his music remain popular in the Czech Republic as well as throughout Europe and the U.S. Fanfare Sounds represents the highest standards of the Austrian regimental march with its stylishly dignified tempo, crisp articulations, and, as an added feature, resplendent trumpeting fanfares that are brilliantly displayed throughout the piece.

George Washington and the Continental Army's withdrawal from Philadelphia to Valley Forge was one of the darkest chapters of the Revolutionary War. The demoralized mood of the troops is conveyed by the Revolutionary-era hymn Chester in a minor setting. A tempo change ushers in a new spirit as the Continental Army perseveres through the harsh winter and becomes a hardened fighting force. Finally, Chester is triumphantly presented in a major key as the now-formidable army emerges, ready to take up the fight and secure America's independence.

This ragtime masterpiece was composed in 1907 and is named after the beautiful variegated southern flower. What makes this particular work stand out from other ragtime pieces is the oddity of its structure, rhythm, and melody, which could be the result of the collaboration of these two composers. The first two strains were written by Louis Chauvin, a brilliant young pianist from St. Louis, and the last two strains were composed by the master, Scott Joplin.  A truly unique and appealing ragtime work.

Hymn and Celebration is specifically written for advanced middle school or younger high school ensembles. More proficient groups will find the ranges, rhythms, and technique to be less challenging but at the same time will find an opportunity to explore and perform contrasting styles in music. This work provides an exceptional medium to teach and reinforce syncopation, articulation, phrasing, and meter changes.

Impulse power, as a method of propulsion, is considered to be up to one quarter the speed of light. Though the tempo of this engaging work for young bands is not quite as fast as that, it does generate a great deal of energy and momentum. The driving opening gives way to an expressive lyrical section complemented by interesting harmonies before returning to the opening material and a percussive close. The resulting fusion is an exhilarating experience for young musicians.

Commissioned by David Cornelius and the Penn-Trafford High School Symphonic Band, Harrison City, Pennsylvania. Quiet and reflective, this musical excursion begins in a subdued manner before taking off on a rollicking wild ride. A middle interlude is slower - contemplative and dreamlike, before accelerating to a spirited and fun-filled conclusion.

Driving in Pittsburgh involves a fair amount of vehicular "dancing" in that there's rarely a direct route to get where you want to go. Metro Dances is a work in five sections about this driving experience. Hit the Gas! starts with a full cup of coffee and just a little less time than normal to reach our destination. Traffic “Jam” abruptly comes out of nowhere in true Pittsburgh fashion. Big Trucks appear, appropriately represented with important material for the lower winds. Next is Rush Hour, which features an optional open section with suggested solos for trumpet and alto sax. Finally, Breaking Free culminates with a brisk finish as traffic opens up and there’s smooth sailing on a free and open highway.

The Van Buren High School Bands (Arkansas) commissioned this piece in honor of their long time band director upon his retirement. The lively and melodic quality of the opening reflects his spirit and the constant energy he applied to his teaching on a daily basis. A quiet and serene middle section provides a lyric, serene contrast, as if pausing for a moment of reflection before the opening material appears again for an uplifting and celebratory finale.

Like many of these small communities, it's long gone but its memories live on. Contrasting themes and musical colors paint a vibrant picture of frontier life on the great plains in the late 1800s.

A sirocco is a Mediterranean wind that originates in the Sahara Desert, capable of reaching hurricane velocities. This piece reflects the changing nature of this dry wind; it starts with a brief and violent flurry, then settles down, depicting the still, hot desert morning. As the desert comes to life, the music evolves into a 6/8 world-music groove, enhanced by colorful percussion effects. Building and growing in intensity, the raging sandstorm powers over the landscape to a climactic close.

Commissioned by and dedicated to the Folly Quarter Middle School Band in Ellicott City, Maryland, Andrew Sprang, conductor. This highly programmatic piece gives you a front-row seat in the viewing stands as it depicts a high-speed car race. The opening section starts the engines, sets the pole position, and then the race is on. The action slows briefly for a caution flag, and then it's full throttle as the race resumes with a wild dash to the finish line, closing with a triumphant victory lap.

Starburst is dedicated to the Johnston County Eighth Grade All-County Middle School Band in Benson, North Carolina. It's a sparkling work that was specifically written to feature all sections of the band. Attention is immediately focused on the hard-driving full-ensemble introduction that moves into a feature for the woodwinds and horns. The trumpets then get the spotlight, followed by a brief woodwind interlude that transitions to the final recap to close with a resounding flourish.
