Wilmington Processional is a five-minute work for orchestra, composed in 2007, and intended as part of a larger work commemorating the Wilmington Insurrection of 1898.
This piece was composed and recorded using
Sibelius software. I am not an expert user, but I think the sound you hear approximates what a live ensemble would sound like
(except that the trombones are not soft enough). The piece is very slow and very soft,
and intended for performance as the audience enters the hall. Thank you for listening.

There seems to be a little glitch near the beginning of the recording. Just move the play button back to the beginning and have it start over; it should then play properly. When it's over (or sooner, if you prefer), just hit the "back" button on your web browser. Better yet, save the file ("Save link as ..."), and then play.
