MVT I. A Voice from the Wilderness The Trumpet Soloist enters quietly from the back of the hall introducing the folk-like melody of the World House theme while the choir and orchestra gradually crescendo, seemingly oblivious to the Soloist's offering.
MVT 2. One Human Race (attaca) The Trumpet delivers a strong and compelling musical statements, and eventually the orchestral community joins.
MVT 3. A Message of Love A soulful passage that joins the community in a shared vision that forms the lyrical heart of the entire symphonic score.
MVT 4. One Human Dream The Solo Trumpet gradually builds to a signature cadenza before the orchestra rejoins in a dynamic and emphatic exclamation.
MVT 5. A Voice from the Promised Land (attaca) The Trumpet Soloist is totally overshadowed by the din of self-interests in the larger ensembles, and leaves while still offering the World House theme. As the din subsides to the quiet strains of Dr. King’s favorite spiritual, the Solo Trumpet can still be heard far backstage, bringing a message of Peace.
