Go Forth to Serve (12 trumpets), in four choirs of three trumpets.
This was composed as a tribute to Professor David Brown upon retiring in 2018 from a long and distinguished career at Brigham Young University.
An excerpt from the introduction to this piece at the tribute recital in July 2018: "BYU has a motto: 'Enter to learn; go forth to serve.' We all entered at one point. We came to learn, and we did! Now there are many out there, serving throughout the world in our various musical endeavors, passing the torch that you passed to us. ... Thank you for catapulting us into our various careers! And now, please accept this gift from me and from all the performers of this work, as a reflection of our gratitude and our continued pledge to 'Go Forth to Serve.'"
