The moon has always been my favorite object in the heavens. It seems so calm and content in spreading its warm and unobtrusive light across the dark night sky. Although the title came after the entire piece was written, it seemed a natural extension of the quiet unfolding in the music.

Moonrise was premiered April 13, 2002 by the Luther College Concert Band during its 125th Anniversary concert and is dedicated with love and gratitude to Frederick Nyline.
