The 'unorganized' territory of Almost, Maine is the backdrop of several fascinating love stories.  A small ensemble cast tells each story of love found and lost, sometimes in surprising places.  The music needed to reflect each story, support each mood.  Sometimes they were light-hearted, other times very comical, and still others were sad and longing.  It was a joy to discover these musical moments in the creation of this piece.
