Shawkemo Dreaming (2009) for string orchestra is dedicated to Robert Moran. The
title refers to Shawkemo, a region of Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. This work is
one of a variety of pieces deeply connected to the landscape of Nantucket.
Overlooking the harbor and conservation preserves, Shawkemo imparts a sense of
peace, amidst gentle wind and sky. The work begins with bell-like tolling through
which a freely lyrical melody is unfolded. This melodic material is developed, building
to small climaxes, before the work settles into a reposed conclusion.
