Suite for Winds and Percussion (2020)

The Suite for Winds and Percussion was written for Dr. Ronnie Wooten and the NIU Wind Ensemble.

Three short movements are provided in a “fast-slow-fast” tonal framework in this work.  The slow movement is the weightiest portion of the work, and represents emotional states similar to those which can occur during a pandemic.  The short outer movements provide preparatory and conclusion expressions.

The movements are performed attacca.
