Honor Our Veterans with Music

American flagThis November, help your community honor those who have served and protected our country by featuring your choir at your local Veteran’s Day events.

I Dream a World by Andre J. Thomas sets an introspective and contemplative text by African-American poet Langston Hughes – “I dream a world where man No other man will scorn, Where love will bless the earth and peace its paths adorn.”  A beautifully emotional poetic thought and equally moving music, now available in a new SSA voicing.

From the musical Chess, Anthem is a stirring tribute honoring the country we love.  Beautifully expressing the idea that no matter how far and wide one travels, our country is always a part of us, it closes with the moving sentiment “My land’s only borders lie around my heart.”

Both of the above selections have instrumental accompaniment parts available, so you can join forces with your school orchestra, local community band or other instrumental ensemble; contact us for more information.  For those wishing to highlight a solo instrumentalist, Joseph M. Martin’s Song for the Unsung Hero features a powerful trumpet descant on the last verse.  Incorporating “America (My Country ‘Tis of Thee),” this emotive choral is a moving tribute to those who dedicate their lives to preserving our freedom and keeping our country safe.

For more patriotic suggests for your Veteran’s Day commemorations, call us at 1-800-426-8742 or visit us online. Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
