Program Notes

Moonrise by Blake Tyson is percussion ensemble piece written for 7 players. This piece is about the moments when everything changes, when something we've seen as ordinary suddenly becomes inspirational, when something we've thought was average suddenly becomes amazing, when we can see, and hear, what we have always missed before. Moonrise is dedicated to the memory of my grandparents, Carl and Gertrude Thomas.

The piece is in two movements, performed without a pause. The first is entitled The Moon Holds My Heart, and the second, which is in many ways a reflection of the first, is called The First Time I Saw the Moon.
