The career of acclaimed composer/arranger/conductor Dr. Henry Panion, III has spanned the musical spectrum—from gospel to classical, pop to rock, and be-bop to hip-hop. He has also collaborated with acclaimed artists including Stevie Wonder, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Peabo Bryson, and Jennifer Holliday. The Alabama Symphony Orchestra recently commissioned Dr. Panion to compose a work celebrating the 50th anniversary of the American Civil Rights Movement.

Watch this moving story now to discover how he realized his 50th anniversary tribute, Here We Are, how he integrated gospel and orchestral music into an uplifting performance, and why Dr. Panion relies on Sibelius music notation software for this and all of his projects.
