Autumn on White Lake

Samuel R. Hazo

Autumn on White Lake conjures images of falling leaves and autumn winds in Michigan. It stirs childhood memories - the smell of the air, raking leaves, slight chill of early evening, gray skies, autumn rains, crisp air.

Composer Samuel R. Hazo (b. 1966) graduated from Duquesne University. He has taught at every grade level, serves as a guest conductor and clinician for Hal Leonard Corp., and is sponsored by Sibelius Music Software.
