*The composer writes: Fandango deAlbuquerque was written in memory of my friend and colleague, Joan deAlbuquerque. My strongest (and fondest) memories of her tend to revolve around her dynamic presence on the podium when she conducted one of her bands - she was one of the most animated, energetic musicians I’ve ever seen, and that energy and love of music infused so much of her life. While I deeply mourn her passing at such a young age, in composing this piece, I wanted to remember what a dynamo she was as a conductor and human being.
