Those Who Serve
THOSE WHO SERVE will be given to as many conductors who will download and print the Music. Other free downloads include JEFFERSON'S VISION and STAR! and more, all which is "free" right here.
Beginning with USA stated in a rhythmically energized Morse Code, the piece quotes each of the military themes positioned against each other and the Star Spangled Banner.
THOSE WHO SERVE may serve you for concert and/or parade situations where a tribute to ANY branch of the military is in order. This tribute is composed and scored in such a way as to provide a Grade 3 opportunity for a wide variety of scenarios.
THOSE WHO SERVE is free with A Wish to the World, a series of pieces written to inspire the next generation of Heroes. These pieces can be played as a suite across the Music Program in the manner of THE FOUNTAINHEAD and STORMQUEST, or they can be rendered individually.
A Wish to the World is commissioned by Barry Wentz and the Alpena High School Symphonic Wind Ensemble with Ray Reynolds, Director of the Thunder Bay JHS Band, and Keith Hodsgon & The South Jersey Area Wind Ensemble, Mr. Larry White & The Rancho Buena Vista Wind Ensemble in California, Mr. Paul Holzen & the Parkway Northeast Middle School, and the Kentucky Music Educators Association.
