Long Distance is a song for Beginning Concert Band that paints the picture of the two lovers who have been separated bya great distance.  Just as might be seenin a movie, the two individuals are singing the same song, however not together due totheir location.  They struggle with theirtime apart, symbolized by the ensemble being split into two groups throughoutthe song, with one group responding to the other’s musical ideas.  Eventually the melodies unite and the fullensemble plays together as the two lovers are finally able to be withother.  The song was inspired by two friends of the composer who spent the first 8 months of their marriage separated due to job circumstances, yet their love for each other never wavered. The composer sought to write a lyrical piece of music using a very limited note range (predominantly the first six notes of the concert B-flat scale), making the song accessible for younger musicians.
