Will There Be a Time is a work for solo tuba that makes a statement against war. In the opening section, March and Battle, the tuba simulates the low rumble of the approaching tanks and gunshots of the ﬁghting. The frantic cries of those trying to escape are mixed with the sounds of the battle in Fleeing Refugees while the hopelessness of the Aftermath asks the question, Will There Be a Time?
This work was inspired by a news report I heard when a woman, driven from her home by war, was brieﬂy interviewed. She and her neighbour had been friends, having coffee together while they talked about their children, and now, she and her neighbour were forced to be enemies against their will by the warring factions and she couldn't understand why this had to be.Learn More

This three movement work is a serious challenge for any college or professional performer
From Lawrence Wolfe: I recently was given a wonderful piece of 'composer' advice: 'write what you want to hear.'
I refined that advice slightly to: 'write what you want to hear Mike Roylance play.' Mike does it all, from providing a foundation for the brass section, to incredible pyrotechnics to turning a phrase with beauty and grace. I used a variety of pitch organizing techniques, but they were all a means to create something that would pay tribute to a great musician. I composed the piece starting with the third movement, so as I worked on the first and second movements I knew where I was headed and took the liberty of providing 'hints' of what was to come.
The piece was premiered in Lenox, MA the summer of 2016.Learn More
