Program Notes

There are times in life when it is hard to find the right words. At times like this music is often able to speak in ways we cannot. My wish is that Where Words Cannot Go can be whatever it needs to be for anyone who hears it.

Throughout this piece I personally hear various musical moments that are like waves of grief taking over a person. To me, it tells a story of loss while searching for light and healing.
