This short, emotionally-charged, fanfare was written based on interviews I conducted with migrant children. These children recalled their experiences often tinged with terror and trauma upon entering the United States from South and Central America for the first time. However, this fanfare develops in strength and optimism over the course of its six minutes to a hope-filled response to the immigrant crisis.
