Overture for a City
Duration: 8 mins.
A sunny, extroverted overture whose excitement and lyricism have brought it many repeat performances. Composed for the Saginaw Symphony, this work possesses a universality transcending the city of its origin.
- “…It was an enjoyable piece…featuring playful woodwinds and bumptious brass, with an occasional soaring violin melody. A symmetry keeps the overture bubbling.”
---Eric Nisula, Saginaw News
- “…a jovial, buoyant piece that recalls earlier works by Gershwin and Bernstein without imitating either of them.”
---Melinda Bargreen, Seattle Times
