Retired U.S. Army Colonel Harold Van Heuvelen wrote a symphony at the end of World War II. It was performed for the first time 67 years after he composed it, at the U.S. Army Orchestra’s Veterans Day concert.
This is wonderful. Not only is the music beautiful, but how marvelous that the composer could hear it performed. I hope it becomes a standard for Veterans' Day.
