Times Circle (1999)
by Charles B. Kim, choral prelude by Forrest Tobey
choral prelude performed by The Peabody Singers,
Edward Polochick, cond.

This piece, performed at 6:45 am on Dec. 31, 1999, was part of the opening ceremonies and marked the first appearance of the Time Being character (Tobey) on the main stage, known as the Temple of Time.

The music was meant to evoke the other-worldly, quasi-sacred atmosphere of the Temple of Time while at the same time touching on world music styles.
