Program Notes

This work is a programmatic journey that takes travels the length of the Ouachita River. Its beauty, its wonder and its history are the basis for this music. I grew up on the Ouachita River and with these notes, hopefully I have shown you some of its beauty!

- Program Note by composer

The 605-mile Ouachita River runs south and east through Arkansas and Louisiana. The river is named for the Ouachita tribe, one of several historic tribes who lived along it. Others included the Caddo, Osage Nation, Tensa, Chickasaw, and Choctaw. Washita is an Indian word meaning "good hunting grounds" and "sparkling silver water."
