    ​Elegy is a musical poem written about a past relationship that fell to pieces. Only through realization of the bitter end, was this piece born.​

    This dramatic and solemn piece is romantic in feeling, but devastating at its heart. Pain, anger, and sadness are emotions heard throughout the piece, but they are not the main focus. The emptiness I felt after the relationship could not be filled and still has yet to be repaired. This piece is my healing process. Through the notes and melodies I try to make sense of it all.

    I wish this piece told me the correct answer. I continue to reflect on the relationship, but as each day passes I forget the pain and become more whole.

(Performance by Michigan State University Wind Ensemble, Kevin Sedatole, Conductor)
