On the western prairie, nestled against a hill, there is an unexpected forest: shade and water abound. Travelers on the Oregon Trail rested here before returning to the treacherous journey. One summer that forest was all I dreamed of.

[That would be the summer I was injured and confined to the apartment. What I’d have given then to be able to go west! Since then, I have gone west!]

[Also, this is my three-handed piece.]

Advanced technique: a challenging solo with a rewarding breadth of expression.

This music has been arranged for Piano Quintet: Piano Quintet Stars on Prairie (Sheet Music)

A Truly Remarkable Piece
This is a wonderfully challenging solo piano work that is right at home in just about any program, but especially one that is intended to be evocative of nature and introspection.

From my program notes regarding this piece: "My paternal grandmother passed away in December 2005, just a few months after I'd moved to Chicago. I was so grieved not to have had the chance to say goodbye -- I'd hardly spoken to her since my move. I wrote in my journal, "I know Maw Maw is on her way to a much better place. But, a part of me thinks that maybe God gives everybody a week, after they die, in which they can go anywhere on earth they'd like to go (effortlessly)... [so] with her angel's wings, she flew all the way up here... and said goodbye, knowing I'd keep her memory alive through telling her stories, making cakes, laughing at the good times, and learning from the bad." Kathleen's piece made vivid that journey -- a soul slowly shaking loose its burdens and taking flight. Stars shining over the snow-covered prairie as one gentle spirit rises to take its place in the heavens."
