Chasing Sunlight by Cait Nishimura

Price: $95.00

Winner of the 2017 Canadian Band Association Composition Competition Included on the MusicFest Canada concert band syllabus B300 category and the University of Toronto Wind Conducting Symposium 2018 repertoire list

Chasing Sunlight was inspired by the experience of driving west into the setting sun, as if trying to keep up with the earth's rotation to catch the last few rays of light before dusk. The steady eighth note motif throughout the piece represents this sense of urgency, while the soaring, lyrical themes depict the warmth and radiance of the sun low in the sky.

Just as the sun will always set, humans must accept the impermanence of all things in life, and make the most of every opportunity before it has passed. Chasing Sunlight also represents the ongoing pursuit of these opportunities.

Chasing Sunlight was the winner of the 2017 Canadian Band Association Composition Competition, which supports the creation of new works for concert band by emerging Canadian composers.
