Commissioned by the Okaloosa County (Fla.) High School Honors Band, Jack Stamp premiered his newly composed “Panhandle Prelude” with that band on February 1, 2013.
The event, held in Niceville, Fla., was coordinated by IUP alumnus Kelly Deklinski (2006). The 100 member ensemble was comprised of students from the four high schools that make up Okaloosa County.
The composed work is based upon the whole tone scale and is currently in press with Neil Kjos Music Publishers.
