Program Notes

In My Perfect Place is a celebration of the life of a young girl whose courage in the face of cancer became an inspiration to all those around her. Jenna lost her battle when she was twelve years old, just two days after Christmas in 2006, but she continues to live on in the memories of those she touched and in the lives she changed forever. This work was inspired by her poem.

Dark and starry sky
It stretches as far as the eye can see
There's no one around to nag me
It's just me and space
The clear night sky is infinite
I can float peacefully
Race the comets
Dance with the stars
Do whatever I please
For I am in my perfect place.

-Jenna Witherspoon
