The Music of Don Gillis II; The Panhandle Suite and more
You're listening to music by Dan Gillis and this is done give us saying Welcome to another broadcast brought to you each week for the national educational radio network. On this our next to last program I've decided to have all of you gather around the bandstand again as we hear a variety of scores played by several fine organizations. And sense for me the proper way to start a band concert is where the march. Will begin at just that way as we hear music. Dr. George C. Wilson and the National High School band of Interlochen recorded for us the mighty Mac. Lou. Lou. Lou and. The at.
Noon. Lose. Lose. Lose. Lose. Lose. Lose. The ad. But lose. The bad. News. The only news. Yeah. The blue. News. The young. Newt.
You. You. You. You. You. You. You. You. You.
Yes. Yes. Yes yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.
Dr. George C. Wilson has just conducted the National High School band of Interlochen in a march called The Mighty Mac as the opening number on music by Don Gillis. Next I'd like to hear a newly published work which will be played for us by the University of Illinois band under the baton of Dr. Mark Hines lay the ballet for band.
RUTH. RUTH. RUTH. RUTH. Dr. Mark Hines Lee and the University of Illinois band have just played my ballet for a band. Our all give us all band concert continues now with a short work which Colonel Samuel Arleigh Botha and the members of the United States Army Band recently recorded especially
for this series. It's titled waltz and waltz time.
The waltz and waltz time music by Don Gillis played for us by the United States Army Band under the baton of Colonel Samuel Arlo Botha. The score which Colonel Botha recorded especially for us on this broadcast series our next music was first played at the annual melds Vogel clinic at Morehead Minnesota several years ago by the United States Army field band under the baton of Colonel Chester Whiting. From this world premiere performance of the land of wheat we will hear Saturday spree and harvest celebration. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah you.
Are and. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah yeah. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow.
For sure. I am to. You. To outlaw any. I am you. Are and you. Go out.
With this performance of land of wheat played for us by the United States Army field band conducted by Colonel Chester Whiting we have come to the end of another broadcast of music by Don Gilet. Earlier we heard the mighty Mack March played for us by Dr. George C. Wilson and the National High School band at Interlochen ballet for a band played by the University of Illinois band under the baton of Dr. Mark Rangely and the waltz in waltz time played by Colonel Samuel Botha and the United States Army Band. You know when I was a kid my two brothers and I had a favorite game which we call the I want a game we played this of an evening mostly on our main prop was the Sears Roebuck or McGovern award catalog. I don't remember the rules exactly but I do remember the wishing that went along as we went through the pages wanting I imagine almost everything in sight. And you know I still sometimes play that game even though I'm a grown up and have long since discovered that you don't get what you want just by wishing for it. But I do it anyway.
Only my catalogue isn't a gummy water Sears-Roebuck anymore but rather my own private catalogue of the compositions I've written over these past 30 years or so and so while I'm thankful for all of the wonderful performances that I have of my music on tapes and records I still sometimes sit and play the I want to gain by wishing for even more beautiful performances of my music for which there are now no tapes or recordings at all. And along with my selfish wishing I wish for money enough to put my total output of music into the schools and libraries. But because that sort of wishing involves such a staggeringly large amount of money I sort of sigh and close my wishing book knowing full well that there are no magic wands to wave to make my dreams become reality. But the daydreams physicist and although I know it's a bit adolescent I keep it up. After all daydreaming and wishing are neither expensive nor taxable and horizons were made for people like me to peer across. And so
