Program Notes

for what it is worth is my thank-you letter to Illinois State University, where I received my undergraduate degree in Composition. It was inspired by the feeling of gratitude, and the idea that simple phrases can have a deeper meaning when exchanged between people who have an intimate connection. As I was writing for what it is worth, I was thinking of one thing -- my friends. I reflected upon how the people I have spent my time with over the four years at ISU have shared with me their time and energy, their joys and trials, and their friendship. Through the contrapuntal interaction and exchanges between timbres I sought to portray simple interactions between close friends and the subtle but present energy they can contain.
