Program Notes

This colorful and energetic fanfare projects confidence, power and stability. The music has a complexity that will stun audiences as the ensemble explores the brilliant textures and harmonies.

- Program Note from publisher

In this short three-minute fanfare, I had one simple and concise aim -- to write an expression of pure joy. In a day and age when we are surrounded by sadness and tragedy, this work seeks to shine light on the good things we may often forget from time to time. Bold and declarative statements juxtaposed with sweeping lyrical passages are sprinkled with muted brass entrances that add a sense of charm and wit to the work. While the tempo stays the same throughout, the rhythmic ideas continually compound upon each other to project a relentlessness ambition which drives all the way through.

- Program Note by composer

Commissioned by the Mount View Middle School Concert Band, Marriottsville, Maryland, Jonathan Sindler, Director; Shelly Williams, Director Emeritus.
