Program Notes

Fresh, cool air. Countless streams teeming with trout. Gorgeous snow-capped mountains. This vibrant work depicts the scenic beauty of the state of Oregon and all its natural wonders.

This work was commissioned by the Oregon Symphonic Band, Michael Burch-Pesses, conductor.

- Program Note from publisher


Few regions of the lower 48 states can boast the scenic beauty of Oregon. As one travels from the Kalmiopsis Wilderness in the southwest past the Three Sisters and Mount Hood to Portland, turning east through the Dallas before going through the Umatilla and Willowa Mountains to Hell's Canyon, one can only admire Oregon as a region of stunning beauty. While composing this work, I often closed my eyes to remember the fresh, cool air, the countless streams teeming with trout and the gorgeous snow-capped mountains that seem to go endlessly past the horizon. Such beauty is uncommon in today's world, and I daydreamed that I could go there again.
