Program Notes

In Dreams explores the powerful and surreal experience fo the crossover between dreams and reality. With subtle shifts in colour and texture, tender and soaring memories, and driving ostinatos, the piece introduces intermediate to advanced bands to elements of minimalism and provides musical challenges for all sections of the ensemble. In Dreams takes players and listeners on an emotional and music journey full of hope and yearning, from deep sleep to a world of dreams and back.

The piece was commissioned by a consortium of 38 ensembles across Canada and the United States. The consortium was organized by Dr. Patrick Murphy at the University of Portland.
