Program Notes


Concord Band commission (1995)

William M. Toland, composer

Solstice is the second movement to Concord Band Seasons Suite. It expresses the winter holiday season in a view which primitive man might have had. The Solstice is the shortest day of the year, and the mystical qualities of ancient ceremonies are inherent in the lyric and music. This piece was written expressly for Vanessa Yvonne’s voice.
