Program Notes

Composing music to honor the memory of a loved one is never an easy task. To the members of the Crowley High School Band and the family of Hailey Cartwright, this work comes with sincere condolences and a heavy heart. From the beginning, In This Beautiful Place was conceived as a musical dialogue; a "conversation" of sorts with the beautiful soul departed all too soon. While not at all speculating as to what a friend or family member would say, the music endeavors to convey the loving sentiments that words simply cannot. The gentle final statement could perhaps be regarded as Hailey's "reply", giving us assurance that she is truly at peace and all is well.
