This musical remembrance pays tribute to fallen heroes of that fateful day at Pearl Harbor that launched our country into World War II. Opening with a peaceful, flowing woodwind melody, the day is heralded in by a lone bugler. Ominous undertones, powerful scoring, dissonant themes and bombastic percussion capture musically the chaos that followed. It's a powerful musical statement the concludes ultimately on an optimistic note that looks to a brighter future.
