Program Notes

The “fanfare” has a rich history of celebration, honoring a special occasion or person(s), so stepping into its space comes with great responsibility and pressure. It is my hope with Eastman Centennial Fanfarethat my music honors the great tradition and legacy established by the Eastman School of Music, while looking forward with great anticipation to its future.

The main melodic cells are derived from musical ciphers of the words Meliora (Efl at, Afl at, G, Dfl at or in solfege Me-Li-(s)O(l)-Ra) and Eastman (E, Afl at, B, Efl at, G or E-As-T(i)-Ma-N using a combination of solfege, note names and a musical cryptogram).

- Program Note by composer

Eastman Centennial Fanfare is one of 14 fanfares composed by Eastman alumni in celebration of the Eastman School of Music's centennial year, 2021.
