Notes & Reviews:

"From my youthful perspective as a band member, I remember enjoying the tunefulness and rhythmic vitality of Chance's music, though even then I thought of it as "typical band music." Now I can hear that his works are inventive, very well crafted, and take unexpected twists and turns. Sometimes they beat and idea into the dust, though, as Symphony 2 does to a four-note motive. It is good to hear these pieces. Conductor Stephen Steele works minor miracles, leading his young players through extremely well-shaped accounts." Kilpatrick, American Record Guide
