Program Notes

Suite for the Heroes Among Us is a musical tribute from master composer Robert W. Smith to all of the everyday heroes that dedicate their lives to the care and protection of us all. The first movement, Fire, is dedicated to the firefighters that choose to run towards danger when help is needed. A powerful musical statement that is programmable and appropriate in every community in the world.
