     For every family the dining room table is the "Heart of the Home." Musically we start with more of a ballad type feel as we present the main "Home theme" that will be used throughout the show. Then the battery enters by breaking the table into two larger pieces and motivating the rest of the chart. Mvt 2 is a big stylistic change a from the rest representing the different rooms in the house. The ballad-closer combo then begins to unravel as we take the audience on one long emotional journey to the culminating apex of the show.

     "Heart of the Home" was originally designed around the idea of having a large table prop of some kind, the bigger the better! It features an assortment of soloists including a trumpet, flute and baritone. It also feature a sax ensemble and small brass ensemble moment in Mvt 2.

     This show was originally commissioned for Chino Hills HS for the fall of 2021 and was released for the 2022 season.
