I was honored when my band-director colleagues in New York State asked me to write a fanfare for the 2005 NYSBDA High School Honor Band. There are so many great fanfares written for band that the task was somewhat daunting. I decided to go a non-traditional direction and write a jazz infused fanfare for concert band! The piece works well as an opener and as an encore.
