Program Notes

This powerful, programmatic work evokes the story of the explorers Lewis and Clark and their Native American interpreter and guide, Sacajawea. Written in two sections, with a dark and ominous beginning that leads into a lively up-tempo section, the overall effect is aided by lots of interesting percussion parts.
