"Journey Home" by SSG Sara Corry (TUSAB)

1 year ago

As the Centennial of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier continues this year, we wanted again to share with you the work SSG Sara Corry of The United States Army Band "Pershing's Own" (TUSAB).

We approached the band and Sara back in 2018 to try an capture the emotions and meaning behind the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in music. Sara was able to write an original composition called "Journey Home" and in May 2019 presented a portion of it for the Memorial Day Concert, played by the Herald Trumpets.

We hope you enjoys this and we look forward to our continued work with TUSAB and the Army to highlight this outstanding piece of music.
