Stars was born out of a life-long fascination with the night sky, and the text is a meditation on the interconnectedness of creation.  The light from distant stars takes eons to reach our eyes, connecting us with an ancient past. Many elements that comprise our bodies were cast out of stars million years ago. Since we are the "stuff of stars," where will we cast our own light? Whose world will we impact? Harmonically, the piece seeks to evoke the vastness and mystery of space, simultaneously capturing the intimacy of connection. A reflective and contemplative work for SSAA Choirs.
