Program Notes

 

Commissioned by the Omaha Conservatory of Music for the 2022 SoundWaves Summer Music Camp.

 

A Short Symphony for Chipmunks, Prairie Dogs, Two-year Olds, and other Cute Little Critters is an intentionally playful work written with the young musician in mind. The melodic and accompanying material stays with the keys of D and G Major.

 

Three short movements depicting "A Day in the Life"

 

I. Scurrying About 

(A mixture of both playful pizzicato and arco bowing)

II. Time for a Nap 

(A quiet lyric and restful movement)

III. Full of Life 

(An energetic final movement to end the day.)
