Program Notes

The combination of graceful melodies and soaring countermelodies are blended with carefully scored dissonances that are rare at this grade level. Rhythms and ranges are accessible for younger players so that you may focus on musical aspects such as intonation, dynamics and phrasing. This delicate work gives your students all the musical elements to expressively perform and experience a range of poignant emotions.

- Program Note by publisher


Whether caused by nature or symbolically brought on through tragedy, storms can be powerful and frightening things. Their destructive force bring devastation and takes away our hope. I have written After the Storm to help bring strength and comfort in the wake of such disasters. While After the Storm does convey a sadness reflective of loss and despair, it also presents an optimistic promise of recovery.
