In This Moment is actually my first composition for band. The composition, in its original form, was written while I was in college and premiered by the University of Minnesota, Morris Concert Band, under the direction of Dr. Pamela Bustos. Ten years later, Dr. Bustos—now at the University of Wisconsin, Superior—invited me to campus to serve as a guest composer and conductor for the 2011 UW-Superior Tri-State Honor Band Festival. I had wanted to reorchestrate In This Moment for years, and the festival provided the perfect opportunity. The reorchestration of the piece was “premiered” by the 2011 UW-Superior Tri-State Honor band, under the direction of Dr. Pamela Bustos.
