Concord Band commission
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.
