Many thanks to Mark Falvo and Eric Schrader for inviting me to write for the students of the Canon-McMillan “Big Mac” Band this past year. They delivered a wonderful debut of “A Scottish Sunrise” on May 14th. The piece begins at the 53′ mark on the video. Congratulations Mark, Eric, and students on a great performance! The piece is now available from Wingert-Jones music, and received an Editor’s Choice Award for 2015-2016.
