The Lilac Dream

  • Flute Choir

    The Lilac Dream was composed for the Mercer University Flute Choir in Macon, GA (Kelly Via, director). This work is programmatic, based on an actual dream of the composer about adventure and suspense surrounding an ancient lilac tree and its environs. The Lilac Dream is in ternary form, featuring harmonically rich outer sections and a scherzo-like middle section. Techniques include flutter tongue, glissando, and passages without Vibrato.
