Program Notes

This interesting work challenges listeners to imagine the view of a shoreline on a calm morning as dense fog obstructs your vision. The air is heavy and expectant, and one imagines that there is something menacing in the fog, something only the sunlight and you can vanquish.

-Program Note from The Instrumentalist

For Loras John Schissel and the John Philip Sousa Band of the Baldwin-Wallace University Summer Band Camp.
