Scored for full orchestra, and commissioned by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in 2001, Heritage Overture pays homage to the musical heritage of Western classical and folk music.  It was performed on tour with the Sydney Sinfonia to regional NSW and has an accompanying educational package containing an in-depth analysis and related compositional activities.

Sandra met Robert Levy through her dear friends, mentors and exceptional musicians, John and Jean Roberts.  At the time, Bob was the director of Lawrence University’s Wind Ensemble. He kindly agreed to have his ensemble perform and record Kroger March, a piece France wrote upon her return to Australia as a reflection of her experiences of living in the U.S. It is a light-hearted commentary on University life in North America, and the prominence of marching bands and wind ensembles, plus the ubiquitous super-market chain of the South West, Kroger.
