Having had two grandfathers who served in WWII, I have always been fascinated with that chapter in my country’s history. Recently, I have become interested in the roles women served in that conflict, as their stories are now starting to surface. This 6-movement suite for concert band, composed for Joseph Lewis, Jr. and the Ashland University Symphonic Band, is inspired by these women, with each movement representing a different aspect of their involvement in it.
