"A Royal Dream" (2014) by D.I.D. Choi is a piece for concert band depicting the grand and powerful dreams that a young man/woman can dream; the routes they can follow, all the destinations they can arrive at, and the vast amount of anything they can achieve. It expresses the emotion of someone who has great dreams–someone with goals. A student has many goals and this piece tells them to pursue them.
To those who have a dream–a goal: pursue it with all you have and don't let anything stop you. And to those who haven't found a goal yet: don't worry, life will take you to amazing places as long as you are patient and you persevere.
Written for the Argyle Senior Concert Band in 2014. Premiered in June 2015 under the baton of Chad Smith.
