Program Notes:  

Growing up in Michigan, King's Point was the street that lead to the local woods where I would spend much of my time exploring and adventuring.  King's Point, as a composition, attempts to capture that youthful and exuberant period in a spirited and swashbuckling overture.  The main theme is first introduced in the violas and cellos and is tossed around the different instrumental voices throughout the opening section.  The second theme is hinted at but does not come into prominence until a more jovial middle section interrupts the building excitement.  The second theme dominates while the main theme dances around in an interweaving counterpoint until it regains control as the third section begins.  From this point through the end, both themes play obstinately on top of one another, battling for dominance, until the piece reaches its pinnacle in a climactic conclusion.
