Program Notes:

“I saw Times Square, bright and full of light, yet I couldn’t see the stars…”

That was something I wrote on a recent visit to New York City and is one of the ideas behind “New York light”. I always enjoy spending time in NYC because of the music, arts, and creative energy.  This past trip was more contemplative for me, and this piece is a reflection on the observations and experiences I had.
