Avondale Overture (Gr. 2)
This concert work works well with young bands. The opening section, labeled andante and maestoso, features two distinct themes. The second theme is used again in the B section at a brighter tempo and accented style. Varying key changes, tempo changes and one 7/8 measure will make this appealing to young concert bands.

Battle Hymn of the Republic (Gr. 4)
is a stirring work which begins with an imaginative introduction using fragments of the theme. As the work develops, the tonality also changes between major and minor keys evolving into the next section, using the familiar Civil War melody "When Johnny Comes Marching Home". An off stage cadenza follows with muffled drums and muted trumpets. The triumphant finale is sparked by a modulation with a strident rhythmic background. This is a grand concert finale especially fitting for patriotic events.

Using memorable melodies, this work will provide for dramatic programming in a variety of concert situations.
