Welcher’s Symphony No. 3 (“Shaker Life”) comprises two separate movements: “Laboring Songs” and “Circular Marches.”

“Laboring Songs” was commissioned in 1997 by three Texas band programs: L.D. Bell High School, Colony High School, and Duncanville High School.

“Circular Marches” was also commissioned in 1997 by the American Bandmasters’ Association.

Though each movement may be performed individually, both were created to form a two-movement symphony.
