In 2018, I was asked to write a short encore for trumpeter Amy McCabe to perform with “The President’s Own” US Marine Band during their fall midwest tour. That resulted in Scram! – 3 minutes of virtuosity and fun!
The equally wonderful soloist Mary Bowden has commissioned a version for herself to perform with chamber orchestra.
This should be completed during the fall, 2022. Mary and I have worked together several times, and she recently recorded my Spitfire for trumpet and string quartet (Kassia ensemble).
