Using the Latin word for silver as its title, this stirring band work was commissioned to honor the career of Ron McHone (the composer’s high school band director) and the 25th Anniversary of his tenure at Sheridan, AR High School. The work begins with a 7/8 section, an inside nod to Mr. McHone’s fondness of the music of Claude T. Smith, then kicks into a high-spirited Scottish sounding dance. After a reflective middle section, the piece recaps the introductory material before finally coming to a rousing conclusion. Spectacular!
