Circle of the River

This piece explores the linear and cyclical aspects of flowing water, and pays homage to the great Mississippi River. The linear and cyclical parts of the piece mimic the flow of the river from one point to another and the cycle of rain and evaporation that happens simultaneously. It was commissioned by the American Composers Forum for Minnesota’s Sesquicentennial, and premiered at the Minnesota State Fair by the Minneapolis Youth Chorus.
