Composed by Roger Nixon


This music was composed in celebration of the hundred-year evolution of the relationship between an American University and its band. The imagery includes a University Chapel, a quiet lecture hall, and a Baccalaureate Procession, alternating with various activities of the band itself.

A Centennial Overture was premiered by the University Symphonic Band of the University of Kansas, Robert E, Foster conducting, April 9, 1992, at the Music Educators National Conference annual Convention, New Orleans, Louisiana.
