Picture taken by my wife. (West Yellowstone)
Fishing with a Friend, was composed between June 12-18, 2015, during a fly fishing and camping trip at Indian Creek Campground in Yellowstone National Park in my little composing studio (tent) at campsite #73. I spent the early mornings and late evenings composing and the afternoons and early evenings fly fishing.
A musical impression, of an old Ouachita Baptist University (Arkadelphia, Arkansas) memory, of a lazy Saturday morning, spent fishing with a friend down on the bank of the river that ran behind the music building.
The music is intentionally quiet, sentimental, and reflective of the sights, sounds, and gently blowing breeze surrounding the slow-moving current of the river.
This orchestration of the original Flute and Piano version was written for, and performed by, students of the Band and Orchestra Program of California High School in Whittier, Ca.
Composed - 2015
