Written at the request of Jay Gephart to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Purdue Bands, Anthem opens as a bright, twittering machine of Flutes, Vibraphone, Piano, Glockenspiel, eventually transforming into a full-on tutti rock anthem. I think of it as a cousin to Radiant Joy, except veering toward “rock” instead of “jazz” in style.

Commissioned by: Purdue University Wind Ensemble to celebrate the Purdue University Bands' 125th anniversary


15 April 2011 Purdue University Wind Ensemble, Jay Gephart, conductor
