Heroic themes abound as noted composer James Swearingen weaves a tapestry of musical styles to depict the emotional story of John Harlin. At the age of nine, John lost his father when he tragically fell 4000 ft. to his death while attempting to climb the mountain known as Eiger (pronounced eye-ger). The Eiger North Face is considered to be the most treacherous climb in all of Europe. Yet, forty years later John, with a burning desire to reconnect with his father, began the perilous journey of climbing the mountain with the nearly impossible goal of reaching the summit. Brilliantly scored, simply stunning and beautifully breathtaking!

    My concert band can get a bit lax with practice and we didn't touch this piece for about 3 weeks but as soon as the instructor told us to play everyone cheered and played it beautifully! A wonderful song, fun to play and amazing to listen to.
