Program Notes

A Hymn for Peace was composed in 2017 and based on my piano composition Breathe. I wrote the composition during a very difficult period in my life. I was battling severe mental health issues, was struggling in university, and at that time my life seemed like it had no direction and I was losing myself. However, two individuals who were there to give me hope were Debbie and Mark Alenius. Through many different instances they helped me gain a sense of belonging and hope, and truly have been a blessing to me. This is why I have chosen to dedicate the piece to them.

A Hymn for Peace is literally what the title portrays. For anyone going through a difficult time, I hope that this work gives you the strength to continue and ultimate give you peace. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
