Concord Band commission (1998)

Thomas McGah, composer

Commissioned for the Concord Band by the Burdine family in memory of Carol Burdine who passed away last year, Sunsets is a beautiful concert aria for soprano and concert band. The piece is based on the Carl Sandburg poem of the same name. Boston composer Thomas McGah captures the beauty of the sunsets which Carol frequently observed while watching the Concord Band perform at Fruitlands Museums in Harvard, Massachusetts, the summer home of the Concord Band.
