Program Notes

The Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) and Aurora Australis (Southern Lights) – the ethereal display of colored lights shimmering across the night sky – are the result of electrons colliding with the upper reaches of Earth's atmosphere. Luminescence is my musical interpretation of this beautiful natural phenomenon. Luminescence was commissioned by the Monroe Township Middle School Percussion Ensemble, directed by Yale Snyder, and Zachary Morolda, District Supervisor of the Department for the Applied Arts and Career Technology for the Monroe Township School District (NJ).
