Tool Kit

This tool kit is your guide to the potential of Ford Made in America. It represents
months of collaboration among the orchestras, the composer, program
staff, and many others involved in this effort. All of its contributors hope that it
enriches your performance of Joseph Schwantner’s Chasing Light…, and that it will
have a positive effect well beyond this program’s conclusion.
