New Repertoire:

Mid-American Sketches - WB462 / $70.00audio available for this titlesample available for this title

Composed in three movements, this work’s intention is to capture the spirit of an American community and celebrate the bringing community together. After reviewing a myriad of photographs of the community, its architecture, and its citizens, as well as several conversations with the director of the commissioning high school band, the composer was struck by a clear sense of the importance of family, of togetherness. This sense of heritage and home is a hallmark of the Midwest and Middle-America and serves as the inspiration for all three movements of the work. “New Horizons” serves as a celebration not only of the new facility, but also as a tribute to the many people that have established their lives and started their families in Middleville. The second movement, “Home”, portrays a sense of pride, reverence, security, and affection. Whether home, away, or abroad, there is a common connection to middle America that is a constant source of warmth. The final movement, “Tomorrows”, embodies the spirit of the future, of new possibilities as well as a dance-like celebration of community.

This short, energetic, and jazzy piece is a lot of fun to play and listen to. The title refers to repeated patterns and phrases that provide support for the melodies. Intertwined syncopated lines require players with excellent rhythmic sense. Composer Scott McKenzie uses a large palette of colors with moving lines, percussive effects, and rich harmonies that will make Groovy Loops an essential part of every band’s library.
