Program Notes

To sit on a bench by the sea is to be at one with the wind, the waves and the world. It is a good place to watch people, smell the ocean air and wonder at the horizon. It is the perfect place to watch the sunrise and sunset.

It is a place to think, a place to rest, and a place to question. It is a good place to come to terms with life, but mostly it is a place to just be.

Jody loved to watch the water and loved concert band music. Now she has her own piece of music and will always have a bench by the sea.

Commissioned by Adam Dalton and Susan Dalton in memory of their mother, Jody Fitzgerald Dalton Elliott.
