Program Notes:                   

Arlington Sketcheswas commissioned by the Arlington Symphony Orchestra for the 1994 District String Festival. The first performance involved over 300 performers of all ages. It has a driving, rhythmic introduction, contrasted by a fluid lyrical section, and builds to a dramatic finale. Like much of Del Borgo’s work, it is has rich harmonies and a variety of colors and techniques.
