Commissioned by UMKC Conservatory of Music (Dean Dr. Terry Applebaum), and inspired by the folk tune on the bagpipe that I heard from the lawn outside of the Nelson Gallery, and the wild singing sound of the Asian folk choral music, the piece is written for the UMKC Conservatory Wind Ensemble and the Heritage Chorale, for the Celebration of Kansas City 150th Anniversary. It was premiered on September 28, 2000, at White Hall, University of Missouri-Kansas City, conducted by Prof. Sarah McKoin, (Dr. Charles Robinson, choral director). The first Asian performance was given by the China National Symphony Orchestra and CNSO Choir on March 2, 2001, at the Beijing Concert Hall in Beijing, China.
