Postcard by Frank Ticheli was commissioned by the composer’s friend, colleague, and former mentor, H. Robert Reynolds, in memory of his mother, Ethel Virginia Curry. It was composed as a short energetic piece celebrating her life and a brief “postcard” as a musical reflection of her character—vibrant, whimsical, succinct. It was first performed in 1992 by the University of Michigan Symphony Band, conducted by Reynolds. (Published Score)
