Now for Concert Band: NORTH TO RACE POINT

Here is an advanced concert band version of my latest full orchestra piece. This was the first time I used this approach – from the start, conceptualizing a piece that might work well in both settings.

Just over 6 minutes in length, it serves as a celebration of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Established by JFK over 60 years ago, this National Park follows 40 miles of the North Atlantic coast of Cape Cod. NORTH TO RACE POINT intends to capture the beauty of this national treasure. Learn more about the piece and give it a listen here.
