‘Yellowwood’ is a work for orchestra with optional video. The piece represents a year in the life of Yellowwood State Forest near Bloomington, IN, and is organized according to the seasons. The third section of the work, ‘Spring,’ features a musical parody (in the manner of the parodies of the early Renaissance) of a hymn by Malcolm Dalglish called ‘Great Trees,’ after a poem by Wendell Berry. The piece was premiered by the IU Concert Orchestra under maestro Angel Gil-Ordonez. It was commissioned by the Board of Trustees of Indiana University and the Jacobs School of Music in honor of the 200th anniversary of Indiana University.
