Symphonic Dance No. 3 “Fiesta”

Symphonic Dance No. 3 “Fiesta” by Clifton Williams depicts the pageantry of Latin American celebrations—street bands, bull fights, bright costumes. It is one of a group of five pieces originally commissioned for the twenty-fifth anniversary of the San Antonio Symphony Orchestra. It was later re-scored for band and first performed in March, 1967, by the University of Miami Band, under the composer’s direction. (Source: Band Music Notes, Norman Smith and Albert Stoutamire.)
