Heroic Journeys commemorates the 100th anniversary of the World War I Armistice with works by Charles Marie-Widor and Johannes Brahms. The ensemble also honors heroes of space exploration with "Imaginary Journeys" by Chicago-area composer Mark Lathan, a native of Arlington Heights. Igor Stravinsky's Suite from "The Firebird" evokes the hero of an ancient Russian legend. The professional ensemble of brass quintet and pipe organ showcase recent works and arrangements it commissioned.
