Program Notes

Star Crossed is the second collaboration with graphic artist, Erik Evensen. It tells the story of a superheroine and a supervillain who fall in love and have to make things work.

Star-Crossed was commissioned by a consortium of universities and high schools led by the Minnesota Music Educators Association (MMEA) and CBDNA and premiered on February 16, 2013 at the MMEA Midwinter Clinics in Minneapolis, MN. It has since been performed by some of the nation's leading concert bands, including the University of Minnesota, St. Olaf College, The Ohio State University, and Concordia College.

Much like its predecessor, Twilight of the Gods, the creative process was truly collaborative, with both artists working together to interpret the narrative into their respective medium. Visual and musical sketches were storyboarded concurrently from the narrative, similar to an animated movie.
