Program Notes

The term current is defined as a steady flow of water, air or electricity in a particular direction. Whatever form the current takes, it is a fascinating source of energy that supports, yet challenges mankind in multiple ways.

The composition Currents by Robert W. Smith takes its inspiration by the various forms of energy used in the art of music and in music education. Unpredictable, yet constantly flowing, the interacting musical lines of energy provide a unique experience for both performer and listener alike.

Dedicated to Mr. Doug Van Fleet as a gift from the students and parents of the St. Mary School Music Program, Paducah, Kentucky.
