"SONG OF HOPE"
Dear Musicians of the World,
We are a crew of Los Angeles-based documentary filmmakers who are capturing renowned trumpet player Ryan Anthony and his 8-year battle against terminal cancer. A huge part of Ryan’s story is how he took the piece “Song Of Hope” by Peter Meechan and used it in his fight. It has since become an anthem of strength, togetherness and hope that has been featured on concert programs around the world.
Now, as Ryan receives his next round of radiation and prepares for yet another stem cell transplant, we are reaching out to as many musicians as possible, whatever the standard, to unite and perform the beautiful "Song Of Hope" alongside Ryan. We will then carefully stitch all of these videos together into one music video proving that in a world under crisis, we are together and when people need hope they can always turn to music.
Pick which part you want to perform from the "Music Parts" section below.

Note from the Composer...
“We want this project to be as inclusive as possible - unity, togetherness, collaboration, and - of course - hope are our goals. The "perfect" take doesn't exist - and so we encourage you, more than anything else, to find joy and hope through your performance - participation is what counts!” - Peter Meechan
To further encourage players of all backgrounds and abilities we have included parts that are accessible to a whole range of playing experience:
e.g. "Flute 4" would be more accessible for less experienced players than "Flute 1".
We have also included parts with alternative clef and transpositions (Horns in Eb, Trombones and Euphonium in Bb, as well as Tubas in Eb and Bb).
Thanks for reading this and we truly hope that you join our video to unite in music and give hope to everyone who sees it.
