March 2019 – Highway of Heroes premier – Gleneagle Secondary School Senior Symphonic Band, Edward Trovato conductor – Coquitlam, Canada

This piece was commissioned by Edward Trovato and his band. The inspiration for this composition came from the name of a stretch of highway that pays homage to fallen soldiers. It was composed to honour heroism of all kinds – to pay tribute to the brave souls who every day unselfishly risk their lives and even pay the ultimate sacrifice. Edward conducted the premier performance that included the school choir – it was beautiful.
