Program Notes

When I write music I feel a need to comment on the world around us -- which, right now, is not always a happy society. But I also want to write music about the world I want to live in -- about the joy, beauty, hope, and love I see in our communities.

In writing Perpetua I wanted to compose a piece of perpetual motion, that is challenging, exciting, and fun -- all brought together through a sense of joy.

Perpetua was commissioned by Foothills Concert Band (Calgary, AB, Canada) and their conductor Anthony Reimer.
