In this virtuoso work commissioned by the University of Minnesota Concert Band, Composer Ron Nelson sought to blend elements of jazz and classical construction into a new indigenous American style. The piece's title refers to a seaside resort on the coast of Rhode Island, not far from Brown University, where Nelson teaches. He earned music degrees from the Eastman School of Music and also studied on a Fulbright Fellowship in Paris. He began composing at the age of six; his compositions include opera, film, band, and choral music. --James Huff 05:49, 23 November 2008 (UTC) (from the program notes of The Claremont Winds, submitted with permission)
