Program notes:

This 7 minute work was one of the very first that I ever composed. I had just decided to become a composition major in my junior year at the University of Oregon (1957). This was my first assignment--working with my very fine teacher at the University of Oregon: Homer Keller. A nice enough little thing, it won't hurt anybody, and might be fun for brass groups to practice, or to play in recital. The first movement is a study in imitation; the second a little choral, and the third a dance in almost a scherzo form. It is not difficult and has been performed by high school and college groups several times.
