American Fanfare (1999)

for concert band
duration: 2’

Concert band version ommissioned and premiered by The Air Force Band of Flight, David Alpar – Commander, 2006

The American Fanfare was originally written for a celebratory occasion for a church in Naples, Florida. At the encouragement of Erik Kunzel, it was scored for full orchestra in 1999, and later went on to win the Florida Orchestra fanfare competition that same year.

In 2006, Commander David Alpar commissioned the concert band version. This spirited and energetic fanfare makes for a exuberant opener to either half of a concert.
