Program Notes

Six was commissioned by the Mid America Freedom Band for a concert with the theme of ‘stories we share’. This piece explores stories from Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-word memoirs by famous & obscure writers (ed. Smith Magazine), in which writers were asked to share their memoir in only six words. The three main sections of the piece respond to the following memoirs respectively:

Section I - “Danced in the Fields of Infinite Possibilities”
Section II - “I still make coffee for two”
Section III - “Traversing the Earth together, chasing elusive answers”
