Commissioned by the Sun City, Arizona Concert Band, this three-part overture kicks off with a rollicking and rhythmic Western-style theme. The lyrical middle theme musically depicts the stark beauty of the Arizona desert with a flowing, yet angular melody before the western flavor rides back toward an exciting and driving conclusion.
