Anthem of Hope subtitled Houston Strong, was composed for the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra in Houston Texas. In the days immediately following Hurricane Harvey and its devastating effect on Houston, this special work was commissioned by ROCO, to help celebrate the resilient spirit of the city and to help people heal. This work has started to take on a life of it's own with its strong melodic structure that embraces the good in all of us as it unifies a nation in need.
