Program Notes

To Honor, Thank and Remember is the second work in the Sacred Heart Jr./Sr. High School Knight Band's "Young Band Commission Series on the Human Experience." The YBCS was created to both add quality literature by outstanding composers to the young band repertoire and to provide avenues of discussion or action on issues or events that affect the human experience. This project was funded in part by the Horizons Program of Salina, Kansas, Arts and Humanities Commission. Funding for Horizons comes from Horizons 50, a private donor group, and the city of Salina, Kansas.

To Honor, Thank and Remember was premiered in May 2001 with the composer and 25 World War II veterans in attendance.

- Program Note from score

Three contrasting sections are united to create this lovely composition which has been dedicated by the composer to the men and women who won World War II. The piece begins with a flourishing fanfare which is interrupted by what may be Michael Story's most beautiful melody. This melody interacts with rhythmic excitement and concludes with a grandiose statement of the theme.
