The rehearsal is of music by Morton Gould, including excerpts of Santa Fe saga [music for Eliot Feld's work Santa Fe saga] and Formations [music for Feld's work Half time], and a work referred to as Battle hymn [Battle Hymn of the Republic]. The recording includes occasional instructions and comments by Gould, Emile Ardolino (the director of the program), Gerald Schwarz (the conductor), and Eliot Feld, as well as a discussion between Gould and Feld.
