Program Notes

Acadia was commissioned by the Sanford Performing Arts Center to commemorate the theater’s opening, as well as the acquisition of its Steinway Model D concert grand piano, said SPAC director Brett Williams.

The roots of the piece are in Acadia National Park, not far from where Gold was working as a music supervisor in the Ellsworth school system in the mid-1950s. It was his first foray into Maine, and he became friendly with Shirley Povich and his wife Helen, who owned a local variety store. When Morton and his fiancée Esther married, Helen Povich gifted them with a painting featuring Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park.

“I became inspired by that vision,” said Gold on Wednesday.
