The Sight That Awaits was Commissioned by Susan E. Wagner HS Ensemble ; Paul Corn, Conductor
Even though I'm just starting to develop as a composer and as a adult, I weirdly feel like I've lived 3 lifetimes. When I write music, I tend to draw inspiration from my experiences. Some memories are light and easy to look back on, and others are so bad , it becomes too much to bear. Well, .. I never like to be too negative but it seems my music speaks words that I cannot.
"The Sight That Awaits Us" is a Grade 4 piece based on a little poem that I wrote. It reads:
"The sight that awaits us is one of beauty and love
We'll see the world through new eyes
And our hearts will be filled with memories
We'll be excited for what lies ahead
And we'll cherish every moment
We'll look back on this time and we'll smile
Because we'll know that it was worth it
Every step of the way."
I won't reveal what the true meaning of the piece is but I'm sure you all can infer based on what I've told you lol. Of course, all forms of art is subjective so I am curious to know what we all feel when we read this poem and hear this piece.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.. Have a blessed day..
I loved this piece! I cried and I didn’t fully understand why. But thank you. It was brilliant . Saw it performed at Carnegie with OYO .
