crown of the continent (2015)

This piece is part of my National Park Series

In the summer of 2014, I had the amazing privilege of serving as the Artist-in-Residence at Glacier National Park in Montana.  I was able to live in the park for a month, exploring the mountains, trails, wildlife, and cultural history that make this place so compelling.  

The resulting piece of music is a 5-minute orchestral piece that fully embraces Glacier's "wild west" history and has echoes of guitars, fiddles, and steam locomotives.   Late in 2015, it was recorded by the Moravian Philharmonic and is included on the SPARKS CD release from Navona records.
