Whales
By Leslie Uyeda
For soprano, C Flute and Bass Flute (One Player), Piano, and pre-recorded whale sound CD

This work was inspired by the idea to present a concert of Canadian music at the Vancouver Aquarium to celebrate the Aquarium's 50th anniversary year. The soprano who inspired this is Heather Pawsey. The text was done by Canadian poet Brenda Brooks. The work is meant to celebrate the beauty, majesty and mystery of whales. Also note the CD included has pre-recorded sounds of whales.
