Program Note

Seven-Up was written in 1999, in what ultimately is an arrangement of one of De Ritis’s works composed for the award-winning computer game Step On It, which won the Macworld “Game of the Year” in 1997. The title has little to do with the soft drink, and more to do with an ostinato written in 7/8 that appears throughout.

Seven-Up was premiered at the Curry Student Center Ballroom as part of the Northeastern University Music Department’s “Music at Noon” concert series, by Anthony De Ritis, viola; Jill Dreeben, flute; Robert Ward, guitar; April 29, 1999.
