Harrie Janssen speaks about his composition.

On 11th March, Emma will sing Harrie Janssen‘s “A Poem Against War” with Het Fanfare Collectif and conductor Jurgen Nab at the Flemmish Open Wind Band Championships in Heist-op-den-Berg, Belgium.

A Poem Against War” is a beautiful piece for mezzo and wind band. The poem, by New York poet Karen Karpowich, is the reflections of a person seeing a war memorial and realising the futility of war and the tragedy that the soldiers are forgotten.
