Program Notes

Commissioned in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Fuquay-Varina Middle School Bands (North Carolina), Epic Venture is a vibrant and colorful fanfare for young bands. While primarily based around a single melodic idea, the textures consistently change and grow in complexity. Beginning with a declarative fanfare, this work takes the listener on a musical journey across the Atlantic ocean along with the early European settlers on their way to North America. The work gradually builds to the climactic ending to celebrate the settlers' long voyage to their new land.
