Freedom was commissioned by the Smithtown Community Band (Smithtown, N.Y.) for their 2018 Summer Concert Series.  The director, Mr. William T. Link, wanted something that could be considered "film music" to fit with their season-long theme.  As I was writing this, I thought about our troops and tried to imagine their emotions as they finally traveled home to their families.  The title Freedom can suggest many possible scenarios - the end of a tour of duty, the end of wearing combat gear, the end of living half of a world away from family - even the end of a war itself.  That is for the listener to decide.




Composed in 2018.


Second Printing, August 2023.


Additional scores and parts are available for purchase.
