Carrollton, Ohio

The Carroll County Commission for the Advancement of the Arts selected composer Mona Lyn Reese of California, who proved to be the perfect choice for the community. She held residencies for school children and wrote a wonderful composition which reflects Carrollton's agrarian lifestyle. The music was written for the Carroll County Chorale, a children's chorus, and a seventeen-piece musical ensemble. The entire community supported the project, and on premiere day used the following adjectives to describe it all: "overwhelming, humbling, terrific and superb." It was indeed Suite Carroll County!
