Program Notes

Mountain Echoes in Our Hearts draws inspiration from the soul-stirring beauty of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Granite peaks with commanding vistas soar above verdant woodland, pastoral valleys and picturesque hamlets. This is the land of Frost and Thoreau, and their words whisper on the wind as our own generation finds beauty anew on hallowed pathways.
