Written and produced by Justin R. Durban, the Pacific War Suite is an original score created for the National Museum of the Pacific War’s new George H. W. Bush Gallery.
Composer Justin R. Durban recorded his score for the new walkthrough exhibit that opens at the newly renovated National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg, Texas, on Pearl Harbor Day – December 7th, 2009. Covering over 32,000 square feet, the exhibition in the George H.W. Bush Gallery will take visitors on the most extensive historical walkthrough of the war in the Pacific, supported by Durban’s music.
Recorded at Ocean Way Nashville’s Studio A, Durban’s score – entitled “The Pacific War Suite” – featured a 48-piece ensemble of Nashville’s finest local studio musicians known as the Nashville String Machine, contracted by Carl Gorodetzky, as well as a 24-piece choir contracted by Stephanie Hall Wedan. Both were conducted by orchestrator Philip Klein. Orchestrations by Penka Kouneva & Philip Klein
The newly renovated gallery at the National Museum of the Pacific War will have its Grand Opening on Monday, December 7th, and a soundtrack album of Durban’s score will be available for purchase at the store, and online.
