Program Notes

The summer of 2008 was a rather interesting period in my life, being filled with both positive and negative events. The preceding spring was a period of some of the most powerful and destructive tornadoes ever ever experiences in the United States. This was coupled with some personal health problems that needed to resolve. Hence, this was the inspiration for the first movement, Changing Weather. The second movement, Wondrous starry Night, was inspired by the numerous cool summer nights when my family would sit around the outdoor fireplace and contemplate the peacefulness and the awe of the stars in the universe. And what would the summer be without the multitude of festivals, whether they are musical, social or simply celebrations? The third movement, aptly title Festival,s is reflective of these events.
