Program Notes

A Western Fanfare is dedicated to the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, California, which commissioned the work in honor of their fiftieth anniversary celebrations. Composed in the spring of 1997, the work was performed throughout the summer season at the Music Academy as a festive concert opener. The fanfare is a bold and uplifting work, reflecting the beauty and excitement of Santa Barbara's famous festival. Although it begins and ends with sonorous low brass and high trumpet flourishes, the middle section of the work is a lilting waltz. In the brief span of three minutes, an snapshot of joyful music making occurs.

A Western Fanfare is also available in a brass quintet version.
