My very first orchestral piece. Submitted for the 2015 Reflections Contest, "The world would be a better place if …," this piece is meant to show that difficult journeys produce results greater than what was ever expected at the beginning. Yes, it may be tough, it may be difficult, it may be demotivating, but through perseverance, great achievements come from it. I believe that we should all push ourselves further than we think we can, because we will all be better in the end. Written over a four-month period, this piece is excellent proof of that philosophy in itself as I did not know if I could write this piece when I started.
