Program Notes

We cannot control everything that happens to us.

Life is a mixture of the good and the bad, the beautiful and the painful, the tragic and the life-giving all in one; it cannot be separated and we do not get to choose. We must never forget that we have the power to create, that no matter what storms may be raging around us we always have the power to choose the good and that by making that choice we choose to create, to make the world more of what it was intended to be.

This music grew out of a desire to make the choice for the good in the face of a very bad personal situation and the belief that when we come together as performer and as listener we actively participate in the re-creation of that good. The title references the fact that we, here and now, can make that choice. I hope that it brings strength to every performer and listener.
