I have wanted for a while to work with Dr. Brian Lamb and the players at UCO. Finally I got the chance when he loved my newest band piece and was looking for something like it to fill a program.

My thanks to Brian and this Wind Ensemble–really talented kids, and most of them Music Education majors heading out into the world to teach others how to do it.
