Program Notes

Throughout the ages, man has created ceremonies, both liturgical and secular, to celebrate human existence. Fueled by the driving force of the percussion section, this work investigates an eclectic blend of musical styles drawn from many cultural roots. The pile-driving rhythms underscore the melodic and harmonic content. Fascinating instrumental colors add richness and vibrance to this powerful new work.
