Series: MusicWorks Grade 2 Format: Softcover Score & Parts Composer: Johnnie Vinson

Level: 2

Composed in remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the title of this dramatic setting is taken from a biblical passage and quoted by Dr. King in his celebrated “I Have a Dream” speech in 1963. After a fanfare-like introduction, the piece is comprised of three sections. “The Dream” relects on Dr. King's famous speech. This is followed by “Strife,” which recalls the violence of the civil rights movement, and finally “Hope,” which looks to a brighter future and is a setting of the hymn We Shall Overcome. Performed with or without the narration, this is a stirring work for young bands. Dur: 5:20
