Program Notes

Inspire your students with music written by one of their peers! Thirteen-year old-composer Tyler Grant has written a wildly intense work based on the attack that occurred on the Normandy beaches during World War II. Pencils tapping stands and foot rumbling help represent the sound of the battlefield as this work comes to life.
