“Firefly” was commissioned by Backun artist, Carrie RavenStem and the Indiana University Southeast Concert Band as part of a faculty fellowship with Indiana University. The music is about the excitement experienced by a firefly being chased by a child. The inspiration came from the clarinetist and the composer’s son, Henry, who made several attempts to catch one elusive firefly to no avail. Keep coming back to see Firefly’s upcoming tour!
