Moon Chasers a marimba solo written by Mark Ford. The music is about two people in love who are separated over a long distance and connected only by the moon. The work, dedicated to Mark’s wife Ewelina, will serve as the musical foundation for the first movement of an upcoming concerto.

You’re the voice of a dream I had
You’re the voice and I’m so glad
You’re the weight of a dream of a life come true
There’s no denying
I sometimes run and chase the moon
I just can
I sometimes run and chase the views
And dream of you

from “Dreamer” by Toni Childs
