‘What Am I Going To Do To Keep Her With Me?’
February 22, 2020 6:09 PM   Subscribe

Turning to music for comfort was always a natural thing for Army 1st. Lt. Elizabeth Elliott, an officer in the Army Band. She turned to that familiar place on November 8 2018, when her daughter Madison was stillborn a day after her heart stopped beating.... This weekend, the U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own” will perform the debut of a new piece inspired by her experience, composer Brian Balmages’ Love and Light, at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center in Alexandria.

This was really lovely, thank you Johnny Wallflower for cuing up the link to the intro for the piece.
