Silver Lake

Posted by

I just received a recording of my concert band work, Silver Lake. This piece was commissioned and performed (Oct 17) by the Mid America Freedom Band. This work takes inspiration from the book By the Shores of Silver Lake, written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. This is the fifth book in the Little House book series, and was published in 1939. The piece depicts a day at Silver Lake (the area now known as De Smet, South Dakota.)

Here is a preview of the work:

This work will be published and available for purchase in 2019! Stay tuned :)
