Abstract

Katherine Hoover was an American composer and flautist. Her main aim in creating music was to tell stories and evoke senses and imagery through her music. She wanted to express her own creativity and pass on the emotions she felt about respecting native heritage to her listeners, to hopefully stir the same feelings in them that she felt. This research is for studying and showing her music idea through performing her two pieces Kokopeli and Winter Spirits.
