Program Notes

Featuring offstage trumpets and percussion, Havener Fanfare is not your typical concert opener. The antiphonal trumpets plaintively begin, joined gradually by the rest of the ensemble. The mood of the music changes from uncertainty to triumphant optimism as the piece concludes with great joy.

-Program Note by publisher


Havener Fanfare was commissioned by Don Miller and the University of Missouri-Rolla Band for the dedication ceremonies of the Havener Center on their campus. The antiphonal trumpet solos and percussion solos were written to take advantage of the design of the atrium where the premier took place. The fanfare opens with the solo trumpets exchanging the work’s primary motivic material building to the entrance of the full ensemble. Boysen develops the song-like melody through canon, dissonant passing tones, and dramatic use of the soloists to build the work to a grand and uplifting conclusion.
