An arrangement for the Bell of Pennsylvania project “A Day in the Life of Pennsylvania” celebrating America’s bicentennial in which amateur photographs solicited from all over Pennsylvania were synced to the score and broadcast over public TV as well as extensive “in-house” use.

There is a 30 second unaccompanied SATB section that had to be cut from the final recording to maintain the allotted time frame of 5:00’.
