Miles of Blue

Brian Balmages
Grade: 4



This powerful work was written in the wake of the death of NYPD Sergeant Paul Tuozzolo, a hero whose last words and actions saved the life of his partner. His wife Lisa Tuozzolo, an avid speaker and supporter of her “blue family,” is also a close cousin of composer Brian Balmages. It was widely reported that over 20,000 first responders lined the streets to salute Tuozzolo one final time along the route from the funeral home to the church. This piece chronicles that unforgettable drive and pays homage to the many officers that fall in the Line of Duty each year. (9:15)

COVID-19 and FJH Recordings
The COVID-19 virus has affected our recording sessions for concert band and full orchestra. In order to ensure the safety of all musicians and to comply with state and federal mandates, FJH has postponed our live recording sessions until a time when we can record safely. In the meantime, we have produced high-quality mockups to help you get a head start on previewing our publications. Nothing will ever replace the incredible musicians who record our music, and we look forward to being together again soon. Thank you for your understanding.
