Program Notes

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness is a multimedia project/collaboration between staff arranger/composer Sergeant First Class Adrian Hernandez and media producer/editor Sergeant First Class Jared Morgan. It is meant to capture the majesty and grandeur of America, the national pride of its people, and the devotion of the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces.

SFC Adrian Hernandez writes, "The film is a two-part presentation with the underscore performed live by the Concert Band and Soldiers’ Chorus. The first part serves as a preamble to the main film, with flashes of Americana of what makes our country so remarkable. The main film takes us on that journey with four young Americans traveling across the country; they hold nothing back and experience everything we have to offer that enriches each of our lives every day. But they also discover why we have this precious gift and what motivates us to preserve this for others and future generations. That gift is the foundation of our country: Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

Filmmaker SFC Jared Morgan writes, “Creating something from nothing is always a challenge. Whatever your canvas is, whether it be music, art, dance, or in this case film there’s no right or wrong way. All you have are the limitations of your imagination and resources. In this day in age it’s very easy to say that it’s all been done, and then you see something that challenges you. Something that makes you stop and think ‘Wow, I don’t know anything about my craft after seeing that!’ That’s exactly how this film came about.”
