Program Notes

Images of Huron is a suite in three parts for wind band. It is based on the wild history of Lake Huron, the Great Lake with which I am most familiar.

The first section, The Discovery of Lake Huron, envisions the lake in its natural, pre-settlement form. Its quick melodic interludes are punctuated with high descending/ascending chords in the woodwinds, celesta, and mallets. The second section, The Great Storm of 1913, is chaotic and aggressive, and represents the strong storm that caused many shipwrecks in 1913. The final section, The Legacy of the Great Lakes, is a fast-paced section led by the xylophone, wood block, and typewriter, representing the oncoming industrialism. A finale recounting the past themes concludes the piece.
