A programmatic piece based on the changing character of that vast inland sea, Lake Michigan, this original composition will remind the listener of the folk-based tunes of Holst. Written for a school located near the beaches, the music reflects the serene mornings, days of large waves and the spectacularly brilliant sunsets. The majestic finish reflects the wonder of a sky full of fire as the sun sets. (3:45).
