Blue Lake (Overture for Concert Band) Revised Edition

Regular price $115.00 $0.00

Commissioned by the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in Michigan and premiered in 1971, this dynamic composition by John Barnes Chance has a unique history. The outer sections of the work feature a rhythmic intensity created in part by Chance's free use of eight-note groupings of 2 and 3. However, when first published, the meter was changed to 4/4 resulting in awkward notation of these figures. Through painstaking research by Carl Bjerregaard, Donald Flickinger, and Myron Welch (all connected with Blue Lake) this revised edition restores the asymmetric meters as the composer originally intended.

Recording by the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp Festival Band, Dr. Myron Welch, Conductor, OMEA Professional Development Conference, February 2015
