Program Notes

A View of the World was jointly commissioned by the Riverside Wind Symphony and the Broad Run High School Band, both located in Loudoun County, Virginia. It is written in memory of Eric Van Nederynen, a member of the Broad Run Band who was killed in what was decided to be a random act of violence.

The piece depicts the world as seen through the eyes of a child.
