Program Notes

Each section in the orchestra is featured throughout this five movement work. Each movement focuses on an animal that calls the pond their home. Hear the waddling of ducks in the first movement "The Duck Waddle". Pond Skaters take to the water in "Dance of the Pond Skater". Koi fish reminisce about their far away homeland in "The Nostalgic Koi". A bullfrog squats in the water croaking deeply in the transition to the last movement "Alligator Hopscotch". As one of the pond animals attempt to cross the pond, is the log on which they step really a log? See if you can tell which of our pond friends risk becoming alligator chow!
