Program Notes

Beginning with a four-bar percussion section solo, this exciting and quick paced concert opener is designed to “rock the house” during the finale section.

- Program Note from The Instrumentalist, January 2015, p. 42


New Era Fanfare is a concert opener written for wind ensemble. It uses motivic development, pop rhythms, and bombastic percussion to make a definite statement at a concert or event. This piece was written for the 2012 Arkansas School Band and Orchestra Association Region VI Honor Band.

In addition to the standard compliment of instruments, the work utilizes the next family to enter the concert band, electronics. Electronic instruments will become part of the concert band, and we as composers and educators should embrace it. These instruments do not replace our band instruments: they add new color. A New Era has begun!

- Program Note from Creek Valley Middle School Honor Winds concert program, 16 December 2016
