Thanks to your generosity, this project will honor those who have served our country.
Led by new music enthusiast and respected pianist Jeffrey Biegel, a consortium of orchestras, led by the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, is being assembled for an exciting new commission of award-winning young composer Jake Runestad. Combining the musical forces of solo piano, chorus, and orchestra with powerful texts written by Iraq War veteran and award-winning poet Brian Turner, the new work explores a soldier’s emotional response to the experience of war. There are opportunities to become involved in the project as a private donor and a commissioning ensemble. Please contact Jeffrey Biegel or Jake Runestad for more information and to participate in this culturally important and historic project.
