Not Afraid to Dream is written in memory of Kevin Langlie, a high school senior who tragically passed away. At the request of his school, it is designed to serve two purposes: to help bring closure to everyone at the school, and to celebrate his life, both the serious and "not-so-serious" moments. The title comes from the eulogy delivered by his band director, Christopher W. Jarvis: "His focus on the positive and the possible left no room in his life for negative attitudes and excuses . . . . He wasn't afraid to dream and share those dreams . . . . ".

    This is a great piece in my opinion. The low brass intro was awesome; some very nice chords were used. I also really liked the transition into the second part. I personally like Brian Balmages, I have played several of his songs in the past but I've never heard...

    this one before. I am looking foward to playing someday this with my band. Balmages has some great songs out there and I recomend listening to some of them.
