You'll be swept back in time as this programmatic work recounts the tale of a race between two Mississippi River paddleboats. The tune Waitin' for the Robert E. Lee sets the boats in motion while a unique sound using plastic milk jugs, and the creative scoring brings it all together in a most appealing way. Good old fashioned charm and story-telling blends well with innovative writing that makes this a superb choice for any concert setting. Very highly recommended!
