Program Notes

Serengeti Dreams was composed for the young band as an introduction to multicultural music. The title of the piece is derived from Serengeti National Park, a wildlife refuge in northern Tanzania, East Africa. The park was established in 1951 and extends east and southeast from the shores of Lake Victoria. Serengeti has an area of about 14,763 sq. km (5,700 square miles). Its hills and grasslands provide habitat to elephants, black rhinoceroses, lions, leopards, cheetahs, gazelles, wildebeests, hyenas, buffalo, zebras, giraffes and antelope. The park is the only place in Africa where vast animal migrations, especially in May and June, can still be seen.
