In 2016 I made an arrangement of the US National Anthem which won me the Gold Medal in the first event of the 2016 Composer Quest Olympics. I even got a shiny medal made of pixels…
As the 4th of July approaches, I’ve decided to remaster the audio and officially release/publish both it and the sheet music of the arrangement! You can get all of it right here on my website today!
More about the music:
There were a lot of intentional modal and harmonic choices I made throughout this arrangement in order to paint certain moods and emotions to the words, that being said, I’m just going to let you take a listen and decide what it all means to you.
The one thing I will say is that sometimes one of the best thing we can do when things don’t look so “up” is to keep bringing beautiful art into the world and do what we can to hold the space for a brighter tomorrow.
Hope you all have a fun and safe holiday.
