Sunrise on Mt. Katahdin
Sunrise on Mt. Katahdin, was written for the flutist Michelle Stanley, a friend who has shared with me many stories of her native Maine. Mt. Katahdin is the tallest mountain in Maine and it is also the first place in the United States to see the sun each morning. This piece is a musical representation of those few minutes between darkness and dawn, where the world is gray and life is beginning to awaken for another day.
