Program Notes

Prism (1998) was written as a theater composition. The three sections within the piece capture three distinct moods as a prism captures light with the first motive reappearing in a different form at the end, bringing PRISM full circle.

The composition expresses many emotions within any given section, representing what we as individuals experience in everyday life.
