Program Notes

The Yellow Rose of Texas


Lewis Buckley, arranger

The arrangement of The Yellow Rose of Texas Variations began when the Coast Guard Band arranged for a tour throughout Texas in 1995, and euphonium soloist Dan Vinson, a native of Henderson TX, asked Buckley if he would write a traditional theme and variations solo for him based on The Yellow Rose of Texas. Buckley, who as a trumpet soloist himself had played all the great Herbert L. Clarke variations-based solos, leaped at the chance. Yellow Rose became a worldwide hit among euphonium and trumpet soloists.
