On Wings of the Wind was written for the Wings Of The Wind Flute Choir, Indianapolis, Indiana. The parts include piccolo, 4 flutes, alto flute, bass flute, and optional contra bass flute. This is a demonstration of the capabilities and sounds of the flute choir. The final measures demonstrate a stereo effect running from the audiences left to right and back to the left as it progresses through each of the player’s parts.

In the October 2006 issue of Flute Talk, reviewer Ann Reynolds stated, “This fast driving piece creates a stereophonic effect by constantly moving the main motive throughout the ensemble, requiring great independence and rhythmic precision for proper alignment and effect. Passages tend to center around scales and arpeggios in E flat Major with occasional chromatic motion. The exuberance of this sparkling work makes it an ideal concert opener or closer.”
