Program Notes

Centennial Celebration Fanfare is dedicated to the Long Beach Municipal Band and its conductor, Mr. Larry Curtis, in honor of the 100th anniversary of the debut on March 14, 1909. The piece is a celebratory fanfare representing cresting waves, warm ocean breezes, and the flourish of sails along the coastline of Long Beach, California. The continual rise and fall of the tide, like the music itself, brings with it the excitement and optimism of another sunny day by the sea. The Long Beach Municipal Band has entertained the citizens of Long Beach for 100 years and the Centennial Celebration Fanfare is a "thank you" to the musicians and conductors of this great band both past and present. The city of Long Beach is privileged to have the Municipal Band as part of their rich heritage and we hope to enjoy the band's summer evening concerts for millennia to come.
