Arranged in a dramatic style, this piece will give your orchestra a "great American standard" to go along with their classical standards! Sung countless times and featured on stage and screen, we also remember this piece from a music teacher favorite, Mr. Holland's Opus. Opening with a solo violin over tremolo accompaniment, we hear the often-left-out opening verse. Next, the cello and viola sections soar with the well-known chorus. The music builds until finally the violins play the theme at the end.
