“I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself.” – Maya Angelou


We are a mobile society, often find ourselves travelling across the country, across the world.  But the idea of “home” seems to be somehow rooted in each of us.  On this program, works from composers who were inspired by their homes, from the wilds of Australia, to the bustling downtown of Atlanta, GA.
