I wrote this piece in partial fulfillment for my DMA at the Eastman School of Music. In 2011, I decided to revisit the work. The result was mostly the same music with a rescoring to highlight the wonderful colors of the wind ensemble. Although the piece is more contemporary sounding than my other works for wind band, it is still considered quite accessible to the listener and has been successfully performed by college bands across New York State.
