Album Notes
The Autumn Journey poem and CD recording symbolize the pursuit of Self Awareness, embracing the Acceptance of Self and the Beauty of Self. Tracks 1, 2 & 4 of the CD recording are Gentle Spoken Word Reflections representing varying personas and scenic imagery one may identify with as they journey through life. The poem reads:

Autumn Journey©*

I was born in autumn
I just missed the summer
Winter’s my only future
For spring’s so far away
But I don’t mind for
Autumn has a beauty
Of its own

Take an autumn journey
It’s one we all must take
Have the good times passed us by?
Have they really passed us by?
I don’t mind from autumn
A new life has arrived

Track 3 of the Autumn Journey CD is the extended music composition written in the signature Urban Classical Music style of composer Leslie Savoy Burrs. This work is composed for orchestra, chorus, jazz ensemble and solo voice.

The CD is a companion recording to the Autumn Journey film - poetry, music and original concept by - Leslie Burrs, Executive Producer. The film is a collaborative project involving the Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services, Opera North, Inc. and Citygate Films. The Autumn Journey film is designed to establish a new model for mental health and substance use awareness, and stigma reduction through Recovery-Oriented Care. The film demonstrates how, through music, song, and video, individuals and communities will be engaged to increase their knowledge and expanding attitudes about mental health and substance use, to advance that knowledge and attitudinal paradigm shift from shame and disengagement to acceptance and inclusiveness. Giving Voice to Understanding, Healing and Transformation in Our Communities.

The Autumn Journey film was a 2015 CINE Golden Eagle Award Finalist for the Professional Media category.
