Suilean a' Chloinne

Performance of Jennifer Margaret Barker's composition, 'Suilean a' Chloinne' (Children's Eyes) presented by the University of Delaware Symphony Orchestra with Dr. James Allen Anderson conducting. The performance took place in UD's Puglisi Hall on Saturday 23rd November, 2014.

Program Note:
'Suilean a' Chloinne' was commissioned by conductor Leslie Stewart and The Bay Youth Orchestras of Virginia. The title of the work is in the Scottish Gaelic language. In composing the work Barker sought to capture in music the beauty, innocence, wonder and joy that are so evident in the eyes of young children. The work is dedicated to Scottish professional musicians, Mr. and Mrs. Renton and Anne Thomson, in memory of their daughter Mhairi Thomson-Tessier, who was a professional cellist in Scotland and Canada.
