Program Notes

A powerful and brilliant opening work for any concert, and especially suited to festive occasions. Written for the 50th Anniversary of Phi Beta Mu, this imposing piece once again demonstrates the composer’s mastery of the modern concert band in all its many colored facets.

A Celebration Fanfare is dedicated to the Phi Beta Mu International Honorary School Bandmasters Fraternity on the occasion of its 50th Anniversary Celebration (1989).
