 The Victory Vertical Project was the name for Steinway’s small, lightweight,

inexpensive upright pianos that could be packed in a crate and shipped to soldiers

in the field during WWII. Pedersen uses descriptive vignettes accompanied by

piano music in many styles to bring to life a remarkable account of courage,

solidarity, and the power of music during the stressful times of war.
