Yosemite Portrait: El Capitan, commissioned in 2007 by the Wantagh Bandwagon Association and dedicated to the Wantagh High School Wind Ensemble, Wantagh, New York, Mindy Dragovich, Director, was inspired by the 3,000 foot rock formation, El Capitan, which overlooks the scenic Yosemite Valley in California (USA). The piece portrays the massive cliff as “Master of Yosemite,” with powerful music that is alternately fearsome and beautiful, grounded and soaring brilliant and shadowy.
