Program Notes

Giroux’s work, An Epic Fanfare, comes from a group of works called Three Fanfares. This specific piece is the first of the three, scored for full band. The second is also scored for full band, while the final fanfare is scored for brass and percussion. It is a brief, yet intense, and rousing piece, with big, open chords, powerful melody lines, and striking percussion, and the listener can expect to feel moved by its intensity.
