Program Notes

Fanfare for a New Era was written as a celebration of Lt. Col. Lowell E. Graham's appointment as Commander of the United States Air Force Band. The composer states, "As I envisioned the piece, I knew that I heard something energetic and vibrant, highlighting the talents of this fine ensemble..."

The work derives its framework from the opening trumpet motif. The motif is expanded and developed through a variety of musical techniques including chorale, augmentation, polychordal techniques, and minimalism.
