Sunrise (Kristen Personius)
Sunrise is dedicated to our dear friend Debbie Turner who continues to bring light and radiance into people’s lives.
“Sunrise is a piece composed after being inspired by the radiant sunrises in Colorado. I remember sitting at my piano watching the golden sunrise illuminate the sky. I wanted to capture this picturesque scene in a composition and as a result, Sunrise was composed. The first section of the piece reflects the soft light that appears before the sun fully rises. As the song progresses the light becomes brighter and this is reflected in the energy and dynamics of Sunrise. In the middle section of the piece the dynamics become softer to symbolize the different colors shifting and changing in the morning sky. The last section of Sunrise carries a high energy and boldness to reflect the sun fully emerging into the sky.”
