Song for Band

William Bolcom

 

Song for Band was written in 2001 for the retirement of longtime University of Michigan band director H. Robert Reynolds.

William Bolcom (b. 1938) is a composer and recently-retired professor of composition at the University of Michigan. His compositions span many genres, from wind band to piano works to opera. He won the Pulitzer Prize for music in 1988 for 12 New Etudes for Piano. He has also won four Grammy Awards.
