  • Notes & Instrumentation

    Originally a marimba & vibraphone duet written as a wedding gift for my friends Michael & Sara Wood, True Things was inspired by the poem and beautiful watercolor print of the same title by StoryPeople creator Brian Andreas. This poem poignantly captures the essence of two people starting their lives together and looking forward to what the future holds.

    "True Things" by Brian Andreas
    They came to sit and dangle their feet
    off the edge of the world
    And after awhile they forgot everything
    but the good and true things they would do someday.

    In 2009, a colleague and I performed the original duet version of the piece (titled Edge of the World) at the National Conference on Percussion Pedagogy. After the performance, Dennis Fisher, who was in attendance, suggested that it would work great as a symphonic band work. It has only taken me 8 years, but I finally got around to adapting it. It is dedicated to Dennis and his wonderful Symphonic Band at the University of North Texas, who performed the world premiere of one of my first works for band, Limerick Daydreams. – NHD
