In Response

to the current state of affairs

Take heart.

The world is beautiful.

Spring is here.

(If you live in the southern hemisphere, I invite you to arrive at your own metaphorical interpretation of the latter statement at this point.)

And so, in spite of these strange and troubled times, or perhaps precisely because of them, freegigmusic offers a new and unquestionably improved arrangement of Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" -- the pivotal tune of the final movement of a final symphony that continues to live on and triumph despite its creator’s final farewell.

Still it serves as what may be the greatest expression of universal brotherhood ever created and an homage to the invincible spirit of humanity.

The selection is available for string, wind, and brass ensembles. Just hit the Browse button above to take a gander at the updates.

Stay strong. We will prevail.
