Across the Isle of Skye
Commissioned by the Texas A & M University Bands
in recognition of
Dr. Timothy Rhea
In honor of his 25th year as conductor of the
Texas A & M University Wind Symphony
The Isle of Skye is perhaps one of the most beautiful places on earth. Rugged and magical, it is the largest of the Inner Hebrides and home to some of Scotland's most iconic views. It has long captured my imagination and once I researched the name Rhea, I knew I was going to compose a work that fit both the genealogy of the name and my dream of writing music inspired by its scenery.
It is a work full of imagery and certain to capture the imaginations of player and audiences alike.
