Joseph T. Spaniola received a commission to compose a set of etudes for the Oahu Band Directors Association (OBDA – Oahu, Hawaii). The etudes serve as audition pieces for the association’s honor bands. An etude set consists of two solo etudes for every wind instrument in the ensemble, and three etudes for percussion instruments. The OBDA commission consists of 31 etudes. Spaniola also composed the association’s 2019 – 2020 audition etudes.
