Dennis Alexander was commissioned by the Double Sharp Music Club of Warroad, MN to write this piano solo in memory of Katie Jo Olafson. Katie was a 16-year-old sophomore at Warroad High School when she lost her life on October 2, 2000 after suffering injuries in an automobile accident. Katie loved music and couldn't walk by a piano without stopping to play it. She participated in piano competitions, playing both solos and duets, and always earned the highest marks. This early advanced solo is written at the level that Katie's friends are currently playing and is in the style that Katie liked to play. Katie's friends and family have used music to help them with the healing process. It is our hope that this solo celebrating Katie's life will bring them solace as well.
