Pandora

Pandora was written at the request of my friend and mentor Brandon Robinson.  He said he wanted a young band piece that used 20th Century techniques.  The aleatoric sections, harsh dissonances, and programmatic nature fulfill this requirement while still being accessible for young players.  *J.W.

Lullabye (Waltz for Band)

Lullabye is a piece that is supposed to evoke the soft, soothing quality of childhood lullabyes.  As a percussionist, it has always irritated me that percussion seem to get cheated on lyrical pieces.  This piece, hopefully, offers percussionists the opportunity to show a more expressive side and participate more fully in this type of music.…

Her Majesty’s Brigade

Her Majesty’s Brigade is a concert march inspired by British marches.  I’ve always love the regal, elegant style of these marches and their more lyrical quality.  In this march, I have tried to capture that sound and feeling.
