Program Notes
The state motto of Kansas is “Ad astra per aspera,” which roughly translates, “To the stars through hardship.” Per Aspera combines settings of texts by Kansas-based poets that address the challenges of emotional turmoil and mental illness. "Mother Shell" is the 4th song of this cycle.
