TRIBUTE TO AMERICA (Solo Piano)

This moving arrangement of two well-loved patriotic songs begins with a reflective section of newly composed material, setting up a mood of quiet introspection. “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” is then introduced in a simple, expressive manner featuring lush chords and alternate harmonies. It then moves seamlessly into “The Star-Spangled Banner,” continuing the same tone of reverence and awe. This builds, modulating from a Bb to Db, while painting a musical picture of the valiant battle that is being fought while the flag still waves; then moves into a stirring climax in a masterful orchestral-like fashion. Suitable for intermediate and moderately-advanced pianists alike, and is appropriate year-round or for patriotic events. LEVEL: Advanced
