The OMEA celebrated our 60th Anniversary in 2009. As part of our celebration the OMEA commissioned Canadian composer Vince Gassi to create a band piece. Phenom was premiered at Con Brio 2009 by the Ontario Provincial Honour Band under the direction of Samuel R. Hazo.

Vince Gassi describes this work: ‘A sense of mystery and wonder is evoked in the opening section of this work. The main theme then bursts its way in with a powerful call and response statement. From here the energy develops and transforms into a lyrical section with vibrant textures and colours. The intensity of the main theme cannot be held at bay for long, however, as it rematerializes and transports this work to its dramatic conclusion.

This piece is part of Alfred’s 2010 collection.
