Arlington Sons | The Story

In 2011 Broadway and Metropolitan Opera star David Pittsinger commissioned composer and librettist Scott Eyerly to create a unique musical score for father and son.
Arlington Sons
Pittsinger envisioned a work that would showcase him and his son Richard (a talented soloist and graduate of New York’s esteemed Saint Thomas Choir School) and honor his late father, a U.S. Army Veteran who served as a distinguished Tomb Guard at Arlington National Cemetery.

Lyrical and expressive, Arlington Sons illuminates a universal experience—the changing of the guard between generations—in a uniquely American context. The 12-minute duet, inspired by true and reverent moments in time for the Pittsingers, is believed to be the first-ever musical work written for a real life father and son.
