This set of four pieces was written to honor the Birthday of George Stanley Macy, born June 3, 2015 to Alex and Jess Macy in Oakland, California.  The first movement (“Hello George”) is the meat of the set as it warmly welcomes George to the world.  The remaining three movements are “little dreams,” or entertainments, designed around baby George.  The first is “Charlie the Cat;” Charlie is the name of the cat that cohabitates the floor of the house.  The second, “Chasing Bears and Birds,” is my fantasy of a dream George may have some day.  The last, “Little Old Lady Whispering Hush,” is a lullaby; it references my favorite children’s book, “Goodnight Moon,”  written by Margaret Wise Brown.
