Program Notes

Through a program sponsored by the American Composers Forum, the Carmel Symphony commissioned James Beckell, Jr., to compose Liberty for All. He originally wrote it for symphony orchestra and narrator. The work includes text from Patrick Henry’s preamble to the Constitution, George Washington’s speech at Valley Forge, and John F. Kennedy’s Inaugural Address. The United States Coast Guard Band commissioned the composer’s transcription for band in 2002.
