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.

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.

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.

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.

The flag of the United States of America inspires tremendous emotion that is difficult to put into words. One of the most stirring moments of this type takes place when the flag is raised at any ceremonial event and the bugle call To the Colors is played. Suitable for concerts or patriotic presentations, this resounding concert work pays tribute to the flag and the men and women who have served our country.

Here is a delightful Latin-style original that will bring a fresh sound to any concert program. The lively syncopated rhythms in 3/4 time bring an energetic and vibrant sound that is both spirited and memorable. The percussion section helps propel the piece forward without the usual cliched rhythms and instruments normally found in pieces written in this style. An attractive and appealing listening experience for everyone.
