Peter Boyer composed and conducted a score of incidental music for the play If All the Sky Were Paper by Andrew Carroll, in a one-night-only production at The Musco Center for the Arts at Chapman University, celebrating the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day/Veterans Day. The powerful and moving play, based on war letters, was directed by John Benitz, and its 18-member cast included four-time Oscar nominated actress Annette Bening, and seven-time Emmy winning actor Ed Asner.

A sold-out crowd of over 1,000 gave the performance a lengthy and enthusiastic standing ovation. Future productions of If All the Sky Were Paper are planned to include Boyer’s newly-composed score, which comprises nearly 30 minutes of music for the 90-minute, one act play.
