Sinfonia Six was composed in 1974 for the Concert Band of Manasquan Elementary School, Manasquan, New Jersey, where Timothy Broege taught instrumental music.

The work was subsequently revised in 1982. The work is essentially about two kinds of contrast. The first is that of mood or, as the later eighteenth century composers would have it, “effect.” The second type of contrast is timbrel.

Each movement places a solo instrument or group in opposition to the tutti ensemble. The first movement is melancholy, the second playful, the third somber, and the finale boisterous and aggressive.
