PROJECT #51: HALCYON HEARTS
PREMIERE: UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA (DR. JAY JACOBS, CONDUCTOR)
love does not
delight in evil-
with the truth
it will always
love never fails.
The effect of love on humanity is abundant and I think we forget that from time to time. Regardless of race, gender, religion, or indifference, we are all united by a common thread: passion and love.
Centered around the warmth that love brings, Halcyon Hearts takes us on an unexpected journey to find love. While this love may result to be romantic for some, to me is about the moment someone finds their passion. Using colors, natural energy, and passion, I created a sound of ambition for the ensemble.
I would like to dedicate this piece to those who love all of mankind- no matter the negativity around you. Let love be love and always choose it- when you do, the halcyon days will come.
