Free Sheet Music-Remembering Newtown, Connecticut- Trumpet Choir

From time to time we have experienced joyous occasions where I felt the need to write something to commemorate the occasion such as the Royal Wedding. Other times I have felt the need to write for less festive occasions such as the National Anthem of Haiti.

With mixed emotions this evening I wanted to offer this arrangement in remembrance of the victims and families at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

Some may wonder why I chose these numbers to combine and all I can say is I was led to do so.

If you use this arrangement, all I ask is that you mention its purpose and that is “Remember the people in Newtown for they have lost more than anyone can imagine”.

    Your arrangement was passed along by one of your trumpet webmates, who plays in my church band. I look forward to playing it at a service in the new year.
    Thanks so much for your efforts.

    I appreciate that and do mention that it was written for the city and the families who lost so much.

    If you get a recording, I would love to hear it.

    Also a photo.

    I hope to start a trumpet choir early next year within one of the several community/concert/symphonic bands in which I currently play. I plan to feature your work on our first concert with the band. Thank you for this beautiful addition to the literature. I hope it brings comfort to those who lost so much and everyone who has been affected by this senseless act of violence against innocent children and teachers in Newtown, CT.

    Thank you for your kind words and support for our offerings.
    If I can be of any additional help to you, please let me know.

    The very best to you and yours from the Branson Trumpet Ensemble.

    I was wondering if you had a published original score for this.
    My students love this piece and we are going to perform it in March.
    The reason I ask is that they always want to perform it at Solo & Ensemble
    But need an published score to do this piece. Please let me know, and
    Great arrangement.

    Thank you for your comments and I will be sending you additional information which I hope will be sufficient for your contest.

    The best of luck to you and your students.
