Programme Note:
Every 3 Children was composed in response to the AIDS situation in Africa where approximately "one in every three children" are affected by AIDS. The piece speaks about a mother’s loss, a communities’ loss, and then becomes an anthem for change and building a new life together.

***

Composed in 2006 for the children of Africa who are affected by and dying from AIDS. This piece is inspired by the passionate work of Stephen Lewis, the title derived from Globe and Mail correspondent Stephanie Nolen's Dec. 24, 2005 story about Alexandra Township in Johannesburg, South Africa. "I looked into the faces, and one in every three children from Mpho's class bore the signs of AIDS."
