Program Notes

Olin Hannum's Sea of Umbrellas was written in response to the Umbrella Movement during the 2014 Hong Kong Democratic Protests.

- Program Note from Oregon State University Wind Ensemble concert program, 8 March 2022

The Umbrella Movement was a political movement that emerged during the Hong Kong democracy protests of 2014. Its name arose from the use of umbrellas as a tool for passive resistance to the Hong Kong Police's use of pepper spray to disperse the crowd during a 79-day occupation of the city demanding more transparent elections, which was sparked by the decision of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress of the People's Republic of China (NPCSC) of 31 August 2014 that prescribed a selective pre-screening of candidates for the 2017 election of Hong Kong's chief executive.
