Gateway to the Alps is the first movement of "The Monaro Suite" commissioned by The Bombala Schools Bands in 1991. John Judge, then a manual arts teacher and the band director and Bombala High School, was the driving force behind the ambitious project to commission three separate works that would be the musical depictions of parts of the Eden-Monaro region of south-eastern New South Wales. Gateway to the Alps presents the listener with images of a picturesque countryside and the people who live there. An energetic main theme is interspersed with swirls of sound depicting the snow's arrival on the Australian Alps.
