Program Note:<br />

In the fall of 2020, my colleagues Robert Natter, Russell McCutcheon, and César Leal approached me with a request to write a piece for a<br />

combination of the large ensembles at the Sunderman Conservatory of Music at Gettysburg College. Due to the unique challenges of<br />

creating music while social distancing, ensembles could rehearse only in small groups, and some student performers were studying remotely.<br />

We discussed the message we were hoping the piece could convey: while acknowledging the immense tragedy that was unfolding in the US<br />

and around the world, along with the hardships we and our students were experiencing, we look for hope and strength in order to move<br />

forward. The piece should speak to the humanity in each of us while reecting the complex point in time we nd ourselves.<br />

My search for texts took me to the Bible, through Boccaccio and Petrarch, and to modern writers, such as Camus. However, it was President<br />

Barack Obama’s rst inaugural address that resonated with me, and that I knew would speak to our community. It is an honest speech, a<br />

brave speech: a speech that addresses the problems of our society. His text holds striking parallels to this moment in history and calls on us<br />

to take action to improve our world.<br />

I structured the piece around the original speech as delivered by President Obama, without cuts or edits. Everything I wrote surrounds his<br />

original rhythms, pitches, rhetoric, and dynamics. We hear his voice, his words, and his message amplied throughout.<br />

January 15, 2021. Gettysburg, PA<br />

Performance notes:<br />

In order to t the music to the original recording, a metronome must be used for either live or physically-distanced performances. Performing<br />

the parts to a tempo-mapped metronome (available as a MIDI or audio le at www.avnerdormanmusic.com) will ensure the synchronization<br />

of the piece.<br />

For balance purposes, the levels of the original speech track will need to be adjusted. The best synchronization point is the opening line "my<br />

fellow citizens."<br />

Obamas-Inaugural-Address-January-20-2009?tid=9<br />

Score Layout:<br />

This work calls for three large ensembles: a choir, an orchestra, and a wind symphony.<br />

The layout of the <strong>score</strong> follows a traditional layout. However, some sections may be divided by the ensembles in different ways. For example,<br />

a section that employs strings and clarinets may involve the orchestra only (with one player on a part for each clarinet staff) or the orchestra<br />

and the wind symphony together (in this case the clarinet staves would be performed by groups of musicians). I intentionally left these<br />

decisions to the conductors of the piece to allow for more exibility.<br />

The marking “1. solo” indicates the clarinet staff should only be performed by one musician.<br />

The piano part may be divided between two musicians as it is quite challenging towards the end of the piece.


Inaugural Address<br />

By President Barack Hussein Obama<br />

My fellow citizens: I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you've bestowed, mindful of the sacrices borne<br />

by our ancestors.<br />

I thank President Bush for his service to our nation -- (applause) -- as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this<br />

transition.<br />

Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath. The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still<br />

waters of peace. Yet, every so often, the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, America has carried on<br />

not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high ofce, but because we, the people, have remained faithful to the ideals of our<br />

forebears and true to our founding documents.<br />

So it has been; so it must be with this generation of Americans.<br />

That we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood. Our nation is at war against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred. Our<br />

economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make hard<br />

choices and prepare the nation for a new age. Homes have been lost, jobs shed, businesses shuttered. Our health care is too costly, our<br />

schools fail too many -- and each day brings further evidence that the ways we use energy strengthen our adversaries and threaten our<br />

planet.<br />

These are the indicators of crisis, subject to data and statistics. Less measurable, but no less profound, is a sapping of condence across our<br />

land; a nagging fear that America's decline is inevitable, that the next generation must lower its sights.<br />

Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span<br />

of time. But know this America: They will be met. (Applause.)<br />

On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conict and discord. On this day, we come to proclaim an<br />

end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas that for far too long have strangled our politics. We<br />

remain a young nation. But in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reafrm our<br />

enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea passed on from generation to generation: the<br />

God-given promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness. (Applause.)<br />

In reafrming the greatness of our nation we understand that greatness is never a given. It must be earned. Our journey has never been<br />

one of short-cuts or settling for less. It has not been the path for the faint-hearted, for those that prefer leisure over work, or seek only the<br />

pleasures of riches and fame. Rather, it has been the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things -- some celebrated, but more often men and<br />

women obscure in their labor -- who have carried us up the long rugged path towards prosperity and freedom.<br />

For us, they packed up their few worldly possessions and traveled across oceans in search of a new life. For us, they toiled in sweatshops, and<br />

settled the West, endured the lash of the whip, and plowed the hard earth. For us, they fought and died in places like Concord and<br />

Gettysburg, Normandy and Khe Sahn.<br />

Time and again these men and women struggled and sacriced and worked till their hands were raw so that we might live a better life.<br />

They saw America as bigger than the sum of our individual ambitions, greater than all the differences of birth or wealth or faction.<br />

This is the journey we continue today. We remain the most prosperous, powerful nation on Earth. Our workers are no less productive than<br />

when this crisis began. Our minds are no less inventive, our goods and services no less needed than they were last week, or last month, or<br />

last year. Our capacity remains undiminished. But our time of standing pat, of protecting narrow interests and putting off unpleasant<br />

decisions -- that time has surely passed. Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking<br />

America. (Applause.)<br />

For everywhere we look, there is work to be done. The state of our economy calls for action, bold and swift. And we will act, not only to create<br />

new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth. We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our<br />

commerce and bind us together. We'll restore science to its rightful place, and wield technology's wonders to raise health care's quality and<br />

lower its cost. We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools<br />

and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age. All this we can do. All this we will do.<br />

Now, there are some who question the scale of our ambitions, who suggest that our system cannot tolerate too many big plans. Their<br />

memories are short, for they have forgotten what this country has already done, what free men and women can achieve when imagination is<br />

joined to common purpose, and necessity to courage. What the cynics fail to understand is that the ground has shifted beneath them, that<br />

the stale political arguments that have consumed us for so long no longer apply.<br />

The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works -- whether it helps families nd jobs<br />

at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignied. Where the answer is yes, we intend to move forward. Where the answer<br />

is no, programs will end. And those of us who manage the public's dollars will be held to account, to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do<br />

our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government.<br />

Nor is the question before us whether the market is a force for good or ill. Its power to generate wealth and expand freedom is unmatched.<br />

But this crisis has reminded us that without a watchful eye, the market can spin out of control. The nation cannot prosper long when it<br />

favors only the prosperous. The success of our economy has always depended not just on the size of our gross domestic product, but on the<br />

reach of our prosperity, on the ability to extend opportunity to every willing heart -- not out of charity, but because it is the surest route to our<br />

common good. (Applause.)


As for our common defense, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals. Our Founding Fathers -- (applause) -- our<br />

Founding Fathers, faced with perils that we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man -- a<br />

charter expanded by the blood of generations. Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience sake.<br />

(Applause.)<br />

And so, to all the other peoples and governments who are watching today, from the grandest capitals to the small village where my father<br />

was born, know that America is a friend of each nation, and every man, woman and child who seeks a future of peace and dignity. And we<br />

are ready to lead once more. (Applause.)<br />

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with the sturdy alliances and<br />

enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead they knew<br />

that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering<br />

qualities of humility and restraint.<br />

We are the keepers of this legacy. Guided by these principles once more we can meet those new threats that demand even greater effort,<br />

even greater cooperation and understanding between nations. We will begin to responsibly leave Iraq to its people and forge a hard-earned<br />

peace in Afghanistan. With old friends and former foes, we'll work tirelessly to lessen the nuclear threat, and roll back the specter of a<br />

warming planet.<br />

We will not apologize for our way of life, nor will we waver in its defense. And for those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror<br />

and slaughtering innocents, we say to you now that our spirit is stronger and cannot be broken -- you cannot outlast us, and we will defeat<br />

you. (Applause.)<br />

For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus, and<br />

non-believers. We are shaped by every language and culture, drawn from every end of this Earth; and because we have tasted the bitter<br />

swill of civil war and segregation, and emerged from that dark chapter stronger and more united, we cannot help but believe that the old<br />

hatreds shall someday pass; that the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal<br />

itself; and that America must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace.<br />

To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect. To those leaders around the globe who seek<br />

to sow conict, or blame their society's ills on the West, know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy.<br />

(Applause.)<br />

To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history, but<br />

that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your st. (Applause.)<br />

To the people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms ourish and let clean waters ow; to nourish starved<br />

bodies and feed hungry minds. And to those nations like ours that enjoy relative plenty, we say we can no longer afford indifference to the<br />

suffering outside our borders, nor can we consume the world's resources without regard to effect. For the world has changed, and we must<br />

change with it.<br />

As we consider the role that unfolds before us, we remember with humble gratitude those brave Americans who at this very hour patrol faroff<br />

deserts and distant mountains. They have something to tell us, just as the fallen heroes who lie in Arlington whisper through the ages.<br />

We honor them not only because they are the guardians of our liberty, but because they embody the spirit of service -- a willingness to nd<br />

meaning in something greater than themselves.<br />

And yet at this moment, a moment that will dene a generation, it is precisely this spirit that must inhabit us all. For as much as<br />

government can do, and must do, it is ultimately the faith and determination of the American people upon which this nation relies. It is the<br />

kindness to take in a stranger when the levees break, the selessness of workers who would rather cut their hours than see a friend lose<br />

their job which sees us through our darkest hours. It is the reghter's courage to storm a stairway lled with smoke, but also a parent's<br />

willingness to nurture a child that nally decides our fate.<br />

Our challenges may be new. The instruments with which we meet them may be new. But those values upon which our success depends --<br />

honesty and hard work, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism -- these things are old. These things are true.<br />

They have been the quiet force of progress throughout our history.<br />

What is demanded, then, is a return to these truths. What is required of us now is a new era of responsibility -- a recognition on the part of<br />

every American that we have duties to ourselves, our nation and the world; duties that we do not grudgingly accept, but rather seize gladly,<br />

rm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so dening of our character than giving our all to a difcult task.<br />

This is the price and the promise of citizenship. This is the source of our condence -- the knowledge that God calls on us to shape an<br />

uncertain destiny. This is the meaning of our liberty and our creed, why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join<br />

in celebration across this magnicent mall; and why a man whose father less than 60 years ago might not have been served in a local<br />

restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath. (Applause.)<br />

So let us mark this day with remembrance of who we are and how far we have traveled. In the year of America's birth, in the coldest of<br />

months, a small band of patriots huddled by dying campres on the shores of an icy river. The capital was abandoned. The enemy was<br />

advancing. The snow was stained with blood. At the moment when the outcome of our revolution was most in doubt, the father of our nation<br />

ordered these words to be read to the people:<br />

"Let it be told to the future world...that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive... that the city and the<br />

country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet [it]."<br />

America: In the face of our common dangers, in this winter of our hardship, let us remember these timeless words. With hope and virtue, let<br />

us brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come. Let it be said by our children's children that when we were tested<br />

we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes xed on the horizon and God's grace upon us, we<br />

carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations.<br />

Thank you. God bless you. And God bless the United States of America. (Applause.)
