This suite of string and piano music was commissioned by www.Inheritage.org and The White House Historical Association in 2003 for a virtual online tour of America's most famous house. The order was a tall one, given The White House carries significance from its humble beginnings to its worldwide influence today. Accordingly, the music needed to be both solemn and uplifting, and at times a bit rustic. Elements within the pieces recall themes from folk music, church hymns and classical forbears. The tours in their original form are still viewable online at www.whitehousehistory.org under History & New Media > Tours.
