Program Notes

The Sanskrit word "skandha" means "heap" or "aggregate." According to Buddhist teachings, each being is a combination of five aggregates of existence, known as the Five Skandhas. They are called aggregates as they work together to produce a sentient being. These aggregates are Form, Sensation, Perception, Mental formations and Consciousness. The aggregates are also governed by the principle of impermanence and thus undergo constant change.

Skandhas is commissioned by the University of St. Thomas Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Dr. Matthew J. George, conductor.
