Violist Jonathan Morgan and I were both in the music department at UC Santa Barbara when the Isla Vista shootings happened in 2014. While obviously horrific, the way the community came together afterward was inspiring. I wrote Elegy II almost immediately, and it was premiered at a memorial concert on campus. It’s a solemn piece, but it ends on a hopeful note. As there seems to be no end to violence these days, that bit of hope is something we could all use.
