Colorful scenes from Vermont are depicted throughout this suite. The Hike to Killington Peak uses syncopation and a swing feel to musically recreate a mountain hike. A grandiose middle section represents the summit. In Farewell to Fall, vibrant colors fade to winter, portrayed by a minor tonality, flowing bass line, and lyrical melody. The state flower is heralded in Flowing Fields of Clover with running sixteenth notes and a syncopated bass. Vermont Maple Syrup pays tribute to the sweet sap that flows in the spring. Written in bluegrass style, one can almost hear the banjo playing at harvest time. "Farewell to Fall" is a Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selection.
