Program Notes

The sense of heritage and home is a hallmark of the Midwest and Middle America and is as the inspiration for all three movements of the work. New Horizons serves as a celebration and tribute to the many people that have established their lives and families in Middleville. Home portrays a sense of pride, reverence, security, and affection. Tomorrows embodies the spirit of the future, of new possibilities as well as a dance-like celebration of community.
