"Into the Silent Land" - Music Reflecting on the Sandy Hook Elementary School Tragedy - Behind-the-Scenes

I grew up in Sandy Hook, CT and attended Sandy Hook Elementary School.

I believe that music is one way we can remember the victims of the tragedy, their families, and victims of similar tragedies. This was the hardest piece I have written, but I hope that the music allows listeners to pause and remember these victims, and come together to prevent this kind of violence in the future.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at “Into the Silent Land,” as the Nazareth College Wind Symphony, conducted by Dr. Jared Chase, prepares for performances in Rochester, NY on March 4th and in New Haven, CT on March 8th (part of the CBDNA Eastern Division Conference at Yale University).
