Duration: 2 minutes
Instrumentation: Medium Brass Ensemble (6 Parts)
Trumpet 1 to 4 in Bb
Trombone 1 and 2
This Fanfare was written for King’s High School Warwick, commissioned for the dignitaries procession at an important event. Given an ensemble of 4 trumpets and 2 trombones of Grade 3-5 standard, this piece is a perfect example of how as music teachers we never have the ‘perfect’ quintet or line-up that fits traditional ‘off-the-shelf’ arrangements. The fanfare uses traditional Hollywood style harmonies and crisp staccato rhythms for a familiar and noble sound. If you have an event or an odd instrumentation group of varying abilities, get in touch to see if I can help!
“This mornings performance of your fanfare was very well received. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed playing is and the VIP’s in the service were bowled over. Bravo sir and thanks again!”
