Program Notes

An uplifting and inspiring piece for young adult/student musicians, the pieces opens with a soundscape reminiscent of the dawn bursting into colour over a still lake. It then unfolds into an uplifting and hopeful fanfare before fading back into a wash of colours for the final bars.

Commissioned by the Canberra Grammar School as part of the Centenary of Canberra 2013 and the Canberra International Music Festival.

- Program Note by publisher

Here I am, contemplating the dawn again. This early morning time has become irresistible, a moment with my thoughts and with awesome splendor. Often there are no words that can express the awareness of the universe as I watch light wash over the horizon. Dawn is friend of the muses. Aurora musis amica.
