Today, I am putting on the finishing touches of a new work for Concert Band entitled Sounds of Lincoln. This is a grade 4 piece that lasts about 12 minutes. This traces the life of our 16th President from Illinois to Ford’s Theatre. Great showcase piece for an honor’s band festival or patriotic festival. I used themes from the time period to evoke the life and times of Lincoln. There is a sample of the piece at www.robwalkerjazz.com/lincoln.
