Found Objects: On the Beach for oboe, clarinet, and bassoon tells of finding objects on the beach – from tumbled stones to sea glass; from driftwood to black feathers on the sand and the seashells that populate the beach as far as the eye can see. A six-movement work approximately 23 minutes. Premiered by the PEN Trio (Nora Lewis-oboe, Phillip Paglialonga-clarinet, and Eric Van der Veer Varner-bassoon), this work is published by TrevCo Music Publishing on the new PEN Trio Collection Series!
