Ileana Perez Velazquez – Reaching Out
Performed by Meghan Berindean, cello
Program Note by Ileana Perez Velazquez
This composition was written during the 2021 pandemic. It was inspired by the need to reach out to those we love that we could not hug, or visit, and the need to reach out to those who lost their lives in solitude, and their families. It is about reaching out to others for us to care about each other, and to reach out for peace during this difficult time.
