Program Notes

The title "What Lies Within" is derived from a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:
“What lies behind us
and what lies before us
are small matters
compared to
what lies within us.”

This, to me, seemed the perfect sentiment and advice for a group of seniors soon to be graduating from high school & moving on to bigger and better things. This piece was commissioned by the Prior Lake High School Percussion Ensemble, Justin Schramm, Director (Savage, Minnesota).
