Program Notes

Open a concert with this short, exciting fanfare that features a multitude of percussion sounds and fast-moving asymmetrical rhythms. It fulfills the function of a good concert opener in that it's sure to captivate the attention of the audience and get them looking forward to the rest of the program.

- Program Note from publisher

Next Generation Fanfare was composed for the Joe E. Newsome High School Symphonic Band, and was premiered in its original version in the spring of 2017 with the composer conducting. It has been edited and expanded, and is now an exciting concert opener that is sure to excite players, conductors and audiences. When I wrote this piece, I set out to create something that would captivate younger players. Most of us can remember being affected by a piece of music at a young age (for me it was Concertante for Winds]] by Ed Huckeby.) I hope this piece stirs a passion for music making in all who hear it.
