Program Notes

This work dramatically depicts moods and images from the historic Lewis and Clark Expedition 200 years ago. As their "corps of discovery" encountered wilderness, mountains and native people, journals were meticulously kept documenting their adventures for all time. Each movement gives musical insight to the momentous journey. Movements include: St. Charles; To the Unknown; Mandan Village; Reflection and The Bitterroots.
