Program Notes

Reflections Through Green and Gold is inspired by my wife Brittany's eyes. Green and hazel, these colors swirl around her iris, mixing with the reflections of the world she sees.

This work is a short tone poem that weaves melodic ideas with lush harmonies across the wind ensemble to emulate this effect. “Green” sections will have darker or murkier qualities, and will be contrasted by the brighter Gold sections.

Reflections Through Green and Gold was commissioned in 2017 by Dr. Adam Fontana and the Bethel College Wind Ensemble, and I am forever grateful for them for this opportunity.
