Hello, my name is Brian Katona. I am a conductor/composer and keyboardist in New York and New Jersey.
I wanted to write and say what a blessing it has been to see so many people reach out to others and help them in these difficult times following Hurricane Sandy.
As a composer, I thought the best way in which I could personally help would be through music. I have dedicated my most recently choral/brass published composition, "Anthem For The Patriots," to the first responders of Hurricane Sandy. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Sandy relief efforts.
Here is a link to the music/video montage, featuring powerful images beyond the storm:
It has been a dream of mine to have students/families most effected by the storm, perform this work on some sort of National level. A powerful way for the public to remember everyone's selfless efforts.
Thank you for your time in looking/listening to this piece so dear to my heart. You may also learn more about me at: www.bekatona.com
