Program Notes

Song of Hope is dedicated to my good friend Ryan Anthony (1969 - 23 June 2020) (principal trumpet with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra) and his charity, Cancer Blows -- a foundation set up to raise awareness and money to further the research that has helped give their family a hope for a future following Ryan’s diagnosis of multiple myeloma.

Upon hearing the middle movement (simply titled Song) of my cornet concerto Milestone, Ryan asked me if I could change the end from its current reflective ending to something more uplifting, and to title it Song of Hope, giving it much more meaning than I could have ever imagined.

For my friend Ryan.
