Program Notes

Midnight Mission is designed to reflect a late-night adventure in which people are heard sneaking around in search of their mission objective. These midnight spies encounter various obstacles during their search, some more comical sounding than others, though the entire piece has a very lighthearted effect, as it is meant to symbolize the childhood games many of us played as kids.
