Light Concert

This overture was written for my friends in the Chiltern Concert Band. One of the tunes is actually based on the rhythm of the names of some of the stalwart members who were in the band when I conducted it in the early 1990s and are still there now.

In compositional terms this piece is in the light vein of Chase the Sun and High Spirits, featuring a fanfare opening that reappears towards the end, a slow middle section and a number of bright melodies, mostly built around the interval of a third.
