Program Notes

Honoring the legacy of Struck by the Ree Palaneapape, a Yankton Sioux chief in the late 1800s, and his tireless efforts to foster peace, this musical tale portrays war, resolution, and escalating tensions. Thunderous percussion and strong melodic statements contrast with gentle and serene moments as William Owens pays homage to an important figure in American history.
