Clifton Williams was a composer of concert band music. He was born in Traskwood, Arkansas in 1923. He served in the Army Air Corps band as a drum major, composing in his spare time, going on to earn a degree at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York in 1949. He won an Ostwald Award in 1956 for his first band composition, Fanfare and Allegro. He taught at the University of Texas at Austin for 17 years, during which he composed one of his most famous works, commissioned by the San Antonio Symphony Orchestra as a celebration of their 25th anniversary: his five Symphonic Dances. In the performance notes, he explains the dances are meant to depict "the pageantry of Latin-American celebration" and "the colorful legacy of a proud people". The most-often performed of his Symphonic Dances is Symphonic Dance No. 3, Fiesta, known among many musicians for its use of the uncommon 5/4 time signature and its incredible trombone part. He died in 1976, but not before passing his wisdom onto his students, including James Barnes Chance. ...more on Wikipedia about "Clifton Williams (composer)"
A composer is a person who writes music. The term refers particularly to someone who writes music in some type of musical notation, thus allowing others to perform the music. This distinguishes the composer from a musician who improvises. However, a person may be called a composer without creating music in documentary form, since not all musical genres rely on written notation. In this context, the composer is the originator of the music, and usually its first performer. Later performers then repeat the musical composition they have heard. ...more on Wikipedia about "Composer"
