  • Notes & Instrumentation

    The evocative opening, with its ever changing themes and instrumentation, portrays those emotions one encounters when contemplating potentially life-changing decisions. Daily routines, with the issues and conflicts that often generate a “grass is greener” mentality, are portrayed in the agitated middle section. The tranquil closing recalls earlier material in an affirmation of those values which retain true importance in one’s life.

    Program Notes
    And A Time was originally composed as part of a doctoral project designed to create accessible mixed-wind chamber music for young performers. The instrumentation utilized ten players in a double-quintet (woodwind, brass) format and was completed under the guidance of Dr. Paul Rudy at the University of Missouri-Kansas City Conservatory of Music. The present setting for full band draws upon the larger wind resources available while also making extended use of the mallet percussion color. It was premiered by the High Plains Music Camp Faculty Band at Fort Hays State University in July of 2003 under the direction of the composer.

    The composer is most grateful to Mr. Dean Kranzler, Professor of Percussion at Fort Hays State University, for his assistance in the preparation of this work.
