Notes & Reviews:

Composer Stephen Shewan (b. 1962) is a graduate of Roberts Wesleyan College and Ithaca College, and received his DMA from the Eastman School of Music. Now the director of bands at Williamsville East High School, he is active as a guest conductor, pianist, and clinician. Winner of the 2011 Choral Composition Festival at Ithaca College and recipient of the 2011 Award for Excellence and Innovation in the Arts from the College Board, Shewan has had performances of his music from orchestras and ensembles across the United States and Europe. His music has been called imaginative and infectious by critics.

This is the third recording on Albany Records devoted exclusively to his music.
