Program Notes

Historically, the court jester’s job in the Medieval and Renaissance era was to provide entertainment at parties, fairs, markets, and other royal events. Dancing around in extravagant outfits, the court jester never ceased to provide spark and life to the atmosphere. Court Jester March is a quirky, lively march sparking sixteenth notes, silly syncopation in the brass, and plenty of rhythmic ringing. Students and audiences alike can easily imagine the Court Jester dancing around, putting on the show.
