@2000’s – I had been mentoring a teen heavy metal band, where almost all of the members were in military families. I suggested creating a military tribute rock/pop music show, a concept which they loved. I developed a few song concepts to start them off with, but their interest in working on a longer term plan waned, and eventually disappeared. When I began my music project, I liked one of the songs I had started, and decided to develop it on my own.
This is the only one of my compositions that involves plans for both orchestra and full choir.
