Mekong is a river that flows through the heart of Vietnam. Robert W. Smith hascreated this composition for band based on the Mekong River delta s historic significance during the Vietnam War of the 1960s and 1970s. Beautiful and haunting melodies, lush and dissonant harmonies and acoustically created soundeffects combine to provide a concert performance experience that will not be forgotten by performer or audience. This piece completes a compositional journey the composer began in Korea to honor his father and those who served in Southeast Asia. "Mekong" is highly recommended as a concert showcase and isan emotionally moving tribute to the military veterans of the Vietnam War.
