This was a custom piece for a colleague’s wife’s birthday. His wife is a music instructor and she adores musicals, especially The Sound of Music. I designed the piece to be his wife singing “the hills are alive with the sound of music,” which is what the notes refer to. I put her in a blue vintage dress that would be reminiscent of something Julie Andrews would wear. I had a blast working on this piece and I was so thrilled to hear his wife’s reaction when she received it!
