Manatee Lyric Overture

Manatee Lyric Overture by Robert Sheldon was commissioned by the Manatee County School Board (FL), and was written in commemoration of the opening of the Manatee County Civic Center in Bradenton, Florida. A colorful and lyric overture for band in a fast-slow-fast setting, the overture was first performed in 1985 by the Manatee County High School Honor Band, with the composer conducting. A trumpet solo opens the slow middle section, with soaring melodies and a festive closing section. (Source: published score and JRO)
