Jubilation! Dance for Orchestra was written in 2000 under the guidance of John David Earnest. Only about nine minutes long, Jubilation! is an uplifting and joyful celebration suitable as a concert opener. The dance, however, is not a traditional one, but takes the listener on travels over exotic peaks and through colorful streets. There are frequent changes in meter, providing unusual interest, often with five beats to the measure instead of the usual three or four. A full complement of winds, brass and mallets brings much excitement, climaxing with a brass chorale preceding a big tutti ending. Jubilation! has been recored on An Orchestral Journey CD.
