Program Notes

A reflection of life and its unwavering march forward.
To know that you have lived a good life,
and have made a difference in the present and the past.
A life that will inevitably and positively affect the future.

Julie Giroux

"Nothing that is can pause or stay;
The moon will wax, the moon will wane,
The mist and cloud will turn to rain,
The rain to mist and cloud again,
Tomorrow be today."

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) Keramos (1878)
