Symphony No. 1 “April Song” program note:
My First Symphony traces a journey of the human spirit in search of personal freedom, solace, and eternal love. The trials and tribulations of doubt culminate in a struggle to find inner peace, as the illusion of happiness crumbles and a sense of direction is lost. Anticipation of a new dawn presses against the limits of despair. With the rebirth of nature after a dreadful winter’s spell, the inner doubts start to dissipate and open a pathway toward greater acceptance and gratitude. The spirit is able to break from the shackles of hopelessness and rise as the phoenix from the ashes.
