Program Notes

Fanfare (2021) is based off of an earlier work composed for trombone quartet by Dr. Wilson of the same name. According to the composer, “Fanfare for Winds and Percussion is epic in nature with rhythmic excitement with an energetic tempo, which should be enjoyable by the audience and those performing it as well.”

- Program Note from publisher

I was asked and honored to compose an opening fanfare for a clinic presentation at the Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in 2016, given by the Florida State University Seminole Trombone Quartet. The title of the work was simply Fanfare and was written to show off the virtuosity of the players.

After some time, I thought it would be a “cool” idea to re-orchestrate the work for a full concert ensemble as a concert fanfare. There has been additional flare added involving all the winds and percussion in the ensemble.
