“Song Of Hope” World Band
This is an awesome opportunity to be part of a very special project!
Dear Musicians of the World,
We are a crew of Los Angeles-based documentary filmmakers who are capturing renowned trumpet player Ryan Anthony and his 8-year battle against terminal cancer. A huge part of Ryan’s story is how he took the piece “Song Of Hope” by Peter Meechan and used it in his fight. It has since become an anthem of strength, togetherness and hope that has been featured on concert programs around the world.
Now, as Ryan receives his next round of radiation and prepares for yet another stem cell transplant, we are reaching out to as many musicians as possible, whatever the standard, to unite and perform the beautiful “Song Of Hope” alongside Ryan. We will then carefully stitch all of these videos together into one music video proving that in a world under crisis, we are together and when people need hope they can always turn to music.

In 2015, at the Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago, I was lucky enough to attend a performance of “Song for Hope” featuring Mr. Anthony as one of the soloists. It was one of the most beautiful and moving performances I’ve ever seen. This is a time when we all need “A Song of Hope”. As Mr. Anthony says, “Let’s be a part of something great, together”.
