Program Notes

Centennial Chimes is one of three short fanfares commissioned by the University of North Carolina Greensboro School of Music to celebrate their 100th anniversary (1921-2021). The title derives from the UNCG School of Music centennial occasion of the commission, as well as the prominent use of chimes and other pitched metallic percussion used throughout the work to give it a celebratory character.

I have a long and warm association with UNCG, including having taught music composition there, and wish the School of Music another successful 100 years of education and inspiration to all those who walk its halls.

The other two fanfares are A Brighter Light and A Chorus Loud and Strong.
