The Dawn Wind was commissioned by the Co-Curricular Branch of the Ministry of Education for the Singapore Youth Festival 2011 Central Judging of Choirs (Junior Colleges/Centralised Institute).
Both the text and the musical ideas in this piece describe the sights and sounds one may hear at two o' clock in the morning, but only if you open the window and listen carefully. Your reward - glistening moonlight, rustling leaves, shadows, the breaking darkness and bird songs as the first light of dawn breaks; and then, finally, the flood of light as the sun rises and the dawn wind abates.
Instrumentation: SATB choir, piano.
Duration: 5 min.
Commission note: Set piece commissioned by Co-curricular Activities Branch of the Ministry of Education for the Singapore Youth Festival 2011
First performance: Apr 13. Performed by choirs competing in the Singapore Youth Music Festival
