Program Notes

This dynamic work captures the rising champion spirit in all of us. Bold melodic lines and powerful percussion writing convey virtues of persistence, resilience, determination, and excellence. After plenty of melodic and harmonic development, the music comes to a thrilling conclusion.

- Program Note from publisher

Champions Rising recounts the journey through challenges and setbacks until ultimately victory is reached. This composition is about persistence, resilience, and achieving excellence. We are all rising champions in one form or another -- striving towards our life goals. It is my intent for this work to inspire others to achieve their dreams beyond what they ever thought possible. Many people avoid pursuing certain ideas or careers because of the internal and external voices that say, “you can’t do that” or “you’re not good enough.” As long as we listen to those voices, we will never be able to achieve true greatness.
