PROGRAM NOTE

Immoral Minority was composed shortly after the 2005 United States presidential election and is a very personal response to the sequence of events that followed. On the morning after the election, I did what many other people in the United States did; I turned on the television to hear the election results. Suddenly, I was overwhelmed by an interview of a woman who had voted for the now re-elected president. She shared with the reporter how ecstatic she was that “America had voted for morality,” thus insinuating that the only moral candidate was the incumbent, and that the 40 million plus American citizens who had voted for the other candidate were “immoral.” Regardless of one’s political persuasions, issues having to do with spirituality and morality are very subjective, based on our own personal beliefs, and should never be used against anyone or any group of people. It creates feelings of us versus them, and never results in peace, harmony and prosperity for humanity. This piece is a result of the emotions and feelings that persisted in me for the next few days, expressed through music.

Immoral Minority was composed for and premiered by Adrienne Kim and the work is dedicated to those who have been judged immoral based on his or her political or spiritual beliefs.

Premiered at the Aaron Copland School of Music, City University of New York, Samuel J. & Ethel Lefrak Concert Hall, Flushing, New York, on November 30, 2004.
