Program Notes

The title, Hymn for World Peace, came from the simple thought that if we want world peace, we can begin as individuals to ask for it. Music making opens hearts and creates peace in individuals and communities. This is a powerful step as musicians that we can take.

- Program Note by composer

Hymn for World Peace was commissioned by the Clarence, N.Y. High School Symphonic Band and their conductor, Louis Vitello.
