“Sawyer Heritage,” Brandon Nelson (concert band, gr3+)


About the Piece

This work was written for the Gwinn Middle School 8th Grade Band in Gwinn, MI, which is very near to the former K.I. Sawyer Air Force Base.  Operational from 1956 – 1995, K.I. Sawyer served as a fighter-interceptor defense and as a nuclear deterrent during the Cold War.  This piece celebrates the vital role the  base played during that period and, as a tribute to the men and women who served there, makes frequent use of the Air Force Hymn.
