Procession was commissioned by the Manukau Symphony Orchestra, as part of the Composer-in-Residence position held by Anthony Ritchie. It was written for the orchestra’s April concert in 2008. The music was inspired by various street processions such as Santa parades or graduations and is buoyant in tone, with strong marching rhythms. A slightly quieter episode in the middle offers some contrast to the rumbustious outer sections.
