Program Notes

The pentagram has long been viewed by cultures and religions around the world as a symbol containing supernatural or spiritual powers. This star, which is usually bordered by a circle, has a variety of meanings and associations within many cultures and religions around the world and throughout history.

This composition musically depicts the five-pointed star by using a time signature with a 3+2 rhythmic feel throughout. The piece begins with a brief full-ensemble introduction leading to a bright, energy-filled main section that explores a variety of textures, styles, and dynamic levels before moving to a powerful conclusion.
