Instrumentation: Wind Band
Vitality (2022) was written for the Aspen Conducting Academy 2022 orchestral readings and arranged for the Youth Performing Arts School Wind Ensemble and Dr. Kevin Callihan. It was inspired by a quote by Martha Graham: “There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening, that is translated through you into action and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.” Graham begins in celebration of discovery and hope (the what), then reflects upon the process (the how), and closes with a warning (the why). The piece loosely follows this structure, musically exploring the prickly and potent glimmers of one’s life force alongside the uncertainty of self-expression and vulnerability.
