Program Notes

The willow tree is an important symbol in many cultures around the world. It inspires us to express deeply buried emotions and feelings in order to relieve us from sadness and grief. The willow also symbolize flexibility and adaptability, as its branches can be bent easily without breaking. By embracing our emotions and feelings rather than fight them, we come out stronger and better able to take on life's challenges. This piece captures that emotional and expressive nature the willow embodies.
