I Shall Not Live in Vain is set to the poetry of Emily Dickinson, whose words embody the deep desire that many of us feel so strongly - the desire to make a difference in the lives of others.

Making a difference takes on many forms. Some are clearly apparent - working at a homeless shelter or donating to a food bank, while others go relatively unnoticed &mdash reading to a child or spending time with an elderly or lonely friend. But all of these make our lives worth living.

This piece is dedicated to my friend, Helen VanWyck, Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities at Trinity Christian College, Palos Heights, IL. She serves as a shining example to her students and friends in her lifelong goal of making a difference.
