Program Notes

This work was commissioned for Linda and Tom Dvorak to honor their niece Aisha Greene. It was premiered by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Youth Wind Ensemble I on May 7, 2006. It is a slow, lyrical work featuring percussion and celeste. As stated on the C. Alan website "In addressing the musical fabric of the piece, we asked the composer to write music with a gentle flow, with singing lyricism. filled with the soft timbres of keyboard mallet instruments, and intermingled with musical climaxes as one might experience in musicals, all mirroring Aisha's gentle and warm personality, and her love for singing and listening to Broadway shows, especially "Annie".
