A New Hope composed by Nathan Daughtrey. Chamber Ensemble. For Chamber Ensemble (Piano 1, Piano 2, Flute, Percussion 1 (Ocean Drum, Bells, Claves), Percussion 2 (Mark Tree, Suspended Cymbal, Egg Shakers), Percussion 3 (Concert Bass Drum, Bell Tree, Suspended Cymbal, Mark Tree), Drum Set, Electric Bass, Violin I, Violin II, Viola, Cell). Medium. Score only. Duration 5:15. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.18061).

Written for and dedicated to Daughtrey's niece on her graduation from 5th grade, "A New Hope" captures all of the nostalgia and hope one might experience as they reflect on one stage of their life and move on to the next. The unique combination of 2 pianos, flute, percussion and strings perfectly captures the intended sentiment.

Written for and dedicated to my niece Jessica on the occasion of her graduation from 5th grade, A New Hope was used as the background music for a slideshow featuring hundreds of photos of all the 5th graders from the Class of 2010 at New Hope Elementary School (Hillsborough, NC). The piece begins rather solemnly with a hint of nostalgia reflecting on the times the students shared together. The ever-uplifting 'Jessica's Theme' is first introduced in the 2nd piano part at m. 16. The theme goes through several transformations until the 'New Hope Theme' is introduced in m. 71. The two primary themes converge in m. 81 between the pianos, flute and strings. 'Jessica's Theme' is presented once more in a new meter (12/8) before returning to the serenity of the opening bars. - NHD.
