Symphonic Poem - That Old Indian Summer

A Symphonic Poem about the changing aspects of the seasons, a musical evocation of the ultimate rippling energy that sums up the memories of a wonderful Summer as it comes to its inevitable end.

"McEncroe's gift for melody regularly surfaces, [in] the folk-like motif voiced by multiple instrument groups in “That Old Indian Summer" --

" interesting combination of repeated motives that bubble along in different layers.  This gives way to more full orchestral statements of the little thematic motive."
-- cinemusical

Composed 2017
