Program Notes

In the Spirit of Unity is an original composition inspired by the aesthetics of a love relationship. To capture the warmth of passion and companionship, the work is mostly lyrical, showcasing beautiful soaring tutti melodies and rich harmonic accompaniment. The solo passages over the opening drones express in the initial quarks and butterflies of expression in a new relationship. As the piece develops there are statements of disagreement, but they are always met with harmonic resolution. Masterful color shifting near the ending shares a profound message of continued mutual respect, acceptance and eternal attraction – all characteristics of the spirit of unity.

Commissioned by the Dillard Center for the Arts Wind Orchestra, Sheldon A. McLean, Director. Music for All National Festival, Indianapolis, Ind., March 15, 2018
