One Response to “Steven’s Song”

  1. The Wolkoff Family Says:

    Steven’s Song was commissioned by and dedicated to, the Wantagh High School Band, Wantagh, New York, Mindy Dragovich, Conductor, and the Steven Nathaniel Wolkoff Foundation, in memory of Steven Wolkoff. A former member of the Wantagh High School Band, Steven played trumpet and later found a passion for performing on bass guitar. Professionally, Steven won an Emmy for his work in streaming media and last worked in a senior position at Freewheel.Com. In June, 2008 Steven’s life was cut short in a devastating 5-car collision that occurred south of San Francisco, California, where Steven lived. He was only 30 years old.
    This composition is a quiet and moving work and is meant to serve as a tribute to the life of Steven Wolkoff. It makes use of simple but haunting harmonies and a melody that will stay with the listener long after its final notes have finished sounding. Through the use of piano and the metallic percussion instruments such as bells, crotales, vibraphone, chimes, assorted triangles, finger cymbals and wind chimes, the composer captures the heart and warmth of this young man who was taken from our world far too early.
