Golden Heart, Anthony Susi Concert Band Grade 3
This varied, eclectic band work was written in memory of a former member of the Torrington, CT high school band. Jessica Sultaire played flute and trombone in the Torrington band, and these instruments are featured in the opening and closing of the composition. The variety of styles in "Golden Heart" reflect the vibrant spirit and determination of Ms. Sultaire to enjoy life to its fullest, even as she was suffering from the ravages of cancer. This is a profound, deeply felt work that reflects a true "Golden Heart", and will be an inspiration to your band students and audience alike.
