Orchestral Program Music

With my background in film scoring, I decided to write some original concert pieces for full (or chamber) orchestra which have a cinematic feel to them. Each of these pieces has a different dramatic theme — they sound just like film music but were written for the concert hall. (Please note: They are not currently available for performance.)

  (Comedy, portraying the hustle and bustle of a big city)  /  Watch video
"The Escape"  (Action/Adventure music)
"The Fire" — excerpt  (Eerie music)
"Learning the Truth"  (Emotionally intense music)   
"The Secret Treehouse"  (Children's Adventure music)  Watch video
"Ireland ~ Land of Beauty"  (A tribute to the Emerald Isle) Watch video
"A Life of Honor"  (Historical Drama theme)
"The Soldier's Dream"  (Suspenseful music)

"The Journey Home" (Period Drama Romance):
1. Main Theme  /  Watch video
