Program Notes

Child Moon was commissioned in loving memory of Leslie Taulbee Waddell by her mother, Peggy Taulbee and the University of Dayton Department of Music. Leslie was a music education major and member of the University of Dayton Symphonic Wind Ensemble. From the composer:

The title and form of the piece are taken from a poem of the same title by Carl Sandberg. The poem is perfect as Peggy [Leslie's mom] shared a story about how Leslie's daughters used to think heaven was essentially the moon and they would talk to her every night.

The premiere took place on Wednesday, April 4, 2018, at the Schuster Performing Arts Center in Dayton, Ohio, with the University of Dayton Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Patrick Reynolds, conductor.
