Program Notes

"From the breathless introduction to the touching chorale on America,... this patriotic fantasy is truly a memorable salute to the spirit and heritage of our great nation.” Composer James Sochinski adds, “This tribute to America was written in honor of the memory of my paternal grandfather, an Ellis Island immigrant who settled in New York City to raise his family. He truly loved being an American, the Yankees, Thanksgiving, the Fourth of July, and everything about his sweet land of liberty.”
