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.

 

There are three short movements.

 

I. Scurrying About

II. Time for a Nap

III. Full of Life

Composed - March 2022

Publisher - SARAHTIM Music Publishing (Stephen Hill) ASCAP
