Lake Superior Suite is a five-movement piece for wind band, inspired by the landscapes of five provincial and national parks on the north shore of Lake Superior. The piece was conceptualized during camping trips at each of the parks, and was finalized during the 150th anniversary of Canada’s confederation. The creation of this work was intended, in part, to expose listeners and performers to local natural wonders through music.
