Enter the Olympians honors the competitive spirit. Although intended primarily for concert use, it can be used to honor teams and individual competitors everywhere. While composer in residence of the "Meet The Composer Louisville Residency," I was commissioned to create a new score for the twenty-plus middle school bands of the Jefferson County Public School System. The work was to be appropriate for widely diverse bands: interesting to advanced students, yet accessible to less advanced students or bands with limited instrumentation. For interest, Enter the Olympians uses pedal tones with harmonies suspended above them, canonic fanfare motives, other harmonies not common at this grade level, and a mid-section that features the lower instruments playing the melody. The work's repetition of essential materials and its secure scoring style broaden its accessibility. Ensemble instrumentation: 8 Flute, 2 Oboe, 6 Bb Clarinet 1, 6 Bb Clarinet 2, 2 Bb Bass Clarinet, 5 Eb Alto Saxophone, 2 Bb Tenor Saxophone, 1 Eb Baritone Saxophone, 4 Bb Trumpet 1, 4 Bb Trumpet 2, 3 F Horn, 3 Trombone 1, 7 Trombone 2, Euphonium, and Bassoon, 2 Euphonium T.C., 4 Tuba, 2 Timpani, 2 Percussion 1 (Glockenspiel), 3 Percussion 2 (Snare Drum, Bass Drum), 3 Percussion 3 (Crash Cymbal, Suspended Cymbal).
