All Concert Band


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.

When arranging a familiar holiday favorite, the challenge is always to hear it in a completely new way. As more and more versions of these well-known classics flood the market every year, it becomes harder to see each tune in a new light. This setting takes the popular Ukrainian Bell Carol and uses it to create a gentle presentation in the style of a lyric lullaby that truly reflects the peaceful and most appealing sounds of the season.

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.

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.

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.

Portal, Nebraska, was one of many once-vibrant towns on the early frontier, full of ambition, determination, and pioneering spirit. 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 the 2004 Harford All-County Middle School Band, Maryland. A strong sense of suspense is established at the very outset, permeating the musical fabric throughout the entire piece to create a very effective, attention-grabbing concert opener. An unsettled and relentless rhythmic pulse drives the work forward, provided at various times by woodwinds, brass, and percussion, keeping the listener on edge until they all come together for the intense and emphatic finish.

Commissioned by the Maynard Music Association for the Fowler School Band (Massachusetts), Kevin Zozik, conductor. Tigers are among the most majestic and fearsome creatures in the world - beautiful, graceful, deadly. This tribute to these wonders of nature incorporates Asian musical influences from the various locales where tigers are found. The mysterious opening hints at the hidden presence of the tiger as he stalks his prey; then the music abruptly takes off as he suddenly springs to the attack and the chase begins. The cat-and-mouse chase continues until the definitive and inevitable finish.
