People go to Harpers Ferry when the weather is nice. The confluence of two shapely and storied rivers - the Potomac and Shenandoah - nestled between ridge heights creates a panorama unique to the Blue Ridge Mountains. But once here, visitors encounter several invitations to somber reflection as they see the battlefields, the stone ruins, the wax figure of John Brown, and numerous flood level markers painted on a lower town building, explaining why old town Harpers Ferry is not the town it used to be.
On a pretty day, visitors come and see battlescapes. Just like life. So much beauty, so much battle, neither ever completely safe from the other. BATTLESCAPES evokes the beauty of the natural landscape while respecting the mixed legacy of a war town in a familiar American musical style.
