Halcyon Hearts

Katahj Copley

Halcyon Hearts

The composer writes: Regardless of race, gender, religion, or indifference, we are all united by a common thread: passion and love. Centered around the warmth that love brings, Halcyon Hearts takes us on an unexpected journey to find love. While this love may result to be romantic for some, to me it is about the moment someone finds their passion. Using colors, natural energy, and passion, I created a sound of ambition for the ensemble.… Let love be love and always choose it. When you do, the halcyon days will come.”
