Program Note:

I’ve been to several weddings where the guests receive tiny tubes of solution to blow bubbles at  the bride as she leaves the ceremony. This trend is much nicer (and more bird-friendly) than  pelting the newlyweds in the face with rice. Upon the receipt of these tubes, I hear fully-grown  adults exclaim, “Ooo! Bubbles!!” Who doesn’t like bubbles!? It seems that bubbles evoke fond  childhood memories in most people.

 

No. 2 was inspired by the four years I spent teaching in the public school system. The piece takes a tongue-and-cheek approach to explore an invasive type of bubble that have taken over our schools.
