New Providence Overture
David Sampson (2003)

The dictionary defines “providence” as “the wisdom, care, and guidance believed to be provided by God.” The New Jersey Youth Symphony is a result of wisdom, care and guidance for its talented and dedicated youth and the future they represent. I wrote New Providence Overture to honor the achievements of both the participants and the facilitators. To capture the vitality and optimism of its performers, I created sections of full orchestral textures alternating with solos, duets, trios which, besides creating tremendous energy and fun, showcase the talents and abilities of each individual. The work ends with a final climatic burst from the entire orchestra. Bravo to all involved in the New Jersey Youth Symphony!
