Castlebrooke Overture (Gr. 2)
is a symphonic overture which is dedicated to William (Bill) Maupin, dedicated music educator and friend whom Claude grew up with and taught with in Chillicothe, MO. This well scored work involves contrasting high woodwind parts with the brass choir. The middle section of the work displays thoughtful development and is ideal for study and program planning. The mallet parts strengthen important thematic lines. The use of a few 3/8 measures along with other meter changes will challenge the entire band. This piece works well with small and large bands, due to its creative scoring.
