The idea for "Reach" came from thinking about elite

athletes who reach for new heights and new goals but

regularly fall short. With each failure, however, they do

not give up, instead reaching even higher and farther and

with more determination. They know that they must reach

within themselves to find the courage and strength to go

on when failure seems inevitable. In the music, each rise

in the melody is followed by a fall, and then a more

determined upward reach. Eventually, after the greatest

fall, the melody begins again, symbolizing the importance

of persistence in the face of long odds as the only way

of achieving excellence in everything we do.
