Background on

Alterations of a Theme

Alterations of a Theme was originally titled Fanfare, Chorale, and March. Since the final section is not really a "march", I decided to re-title the work to something more attention-grabbing.
The piece was written in 1966 at the age of 19 as my first attempt in dealing with a theme and its variations. The entire work is based on the opening statement by the solo cornet.
The work was performed on three occasions in 1966 and 1968 by the Oklahoma Baptist University Band with myself conducting on two of those concerts.
