Gateway Overture is an overture-style piece that would have faster and energetic parts, as well as slower and more lyrical passages as well. I was happy to write something that could help the students develop multiple styles of playing.
I decided on the title Gateway Overture after visiting Bensenville's website, where I learned that the town now has the motto "Gateway to Opportunity." Once I read that, I knew what the title needed to be. It is my hope that this piece reminds these young musicians that the future holds new and exciting opportunities.
