Program Notes

Hymn to the Dawn was originally the second movement of a work for brass quintet. It was composed in memory of Charlie Carter, staff arranger for the Florida State University Marching Chiefs and one of my first composition teachers. Charlie became seriously ill while I was at graduate school. I was reluctant to face the severity of his illness and hesitated to call him in the hospital; as a result, he passed away before I had a chance to say goodbye.

Although the title suggests moving forward, the music is meant to reflect the unresolved nature of my relationship with Charlie.
