Program Notes

Spring is the time for renewal. We shed our heavier clothes in exchange for warmer weather, plant growth and new animal births.

This five-minute work is divided into three sections:

The Call to Spring. Spring means different things to each of us. For those in colder climates, the snow is on its way out and new grass is starting emerge. Birds soaring in the sky are returning to their winter havens.

A Spring Rain. April showers bring May flowers. The new plants need the water, and children need places to puddle jump!

The Celebration of Spring. When the rain finishes watering our plants, people spend time outside, enjoying nature and the new sights, sounds and fragrances Mother Nature has to offer.
