Program Notes

Peter Boyer has been commissioned by the United States Marine Band to compose a special fanfare to be performed at the Inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States, at the U.S. Capitol on January 20. Boyer’s new work, Fanfare for Tomorrow, will be performed as part of the one-hour Prelude music of the Inauguration, conducted by the Marine Band’s Director, Colonel Jason K. Fettig.

Fanfare for Tomorrow began as a brief piece for solo French horn, originally commissioned by the Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestra last year, as part of their Fanfare Project in response to the pandemic. Boyer significantly expanded and developed that music for a full concert band for this commission. Boyer stated,

In these extraordinarily challenging days for our country, I am grateful for this opportunity to contribute some optimistic music to an historic occasion, at which Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will take their oaths of office as the next president and vice president of the United States. This commission represents one of the greatest honors of my life as an American composer.
