Every couple of years, I write a Grade II or III concert band piece to fill a hole in the C. Alan Publications catalog for a given year. Downtown Dash was written for release in the summer of 2009 and was subsequently selected as a J.W. Pepper Editor's Choice piece and was just included in the newest volume (8) of GIA Publications' series "Teaching Music Through Performance in Band" series. The world-renowned University of North Texas Wind Symphony, conducted by Eugene Corporon, recorded it beautifully ensuring this little Grade II band piece will never sound so good.
"Downtown Dash" is published by C. Alan Publications and is available from music dealers all over the world.
