Program Notes

Hymn to the Infinite Sky is a tone poem based on the words of the conductor of the school band who commissioned the work:

The sky has to be a symbol of peace. However, there is sky where combat planes are flying when children look up. That is very sad. I wish there would be no more conflict on the Earth. I hope that children all over the world will hold onto their dreams towards the sky. I pray to the infinite sky for world peace.
