Program Notes

Silver Fanfare is the first movement of a larger work, On Music’s Wings, which was commissioned by the Pacific Symphony in 2004 to celebrate its 25th anniversary. The movement is a virtuosic and exultant work for orchestra that has evolved to a wildly popular standalone showpiece. In the words of the composer:

It has been very gratifying to me that, subsequent to its première by the Pacific Symphony, Silver Fanfare has been performed by a number of America’s finest orchestras, including the Boston Pops, Philadelphia Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, Cincinnati Pops, Nashville Symphony, and Hollywood Bowl Orchestra -- and that it was chosen to open both the 2011 season of the Boston Pops and the 2015, 2016, and 2017 seasons of the Hollywood Bowl.
