New Life is a composition in three movements. The first, Solitary Dance, captures the lonely emotions of a person dancing a familiar dance, alone. The second, Going Home, reflects upon the experience of air travel, and the complex, often frustrating, but ultimately satisfying emotions that come with it. The final movement, New Life, embodies the feeling of starting over, and beginning a new chapter in one's life. This work is great for both performers and audiences alike, and is a great concert work.
