Fanfare Orlando

Fanfare Orlando  is a commission for a fanfare in honor of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra‘s  Silver Jubilee  25th season.

I composed “Fanfare Orlando” for the OPO brass section to both lift the spirit and to recognize the greatness of the people of Central Florida where our orchestra lives. We are all proud of our city’s compassionate action in response to its tragedies, its leadership in education, health and the sciences, and its strong arts communities represented by the Orlando Phil’s 25th season, the new Dr. Phillips Center, Timucua Arts and other art music venues the city now enjoys. We have much to fanfare about!

“Fanfare Orlando” contains two melodies: first, a kind of sophisticated bugle call full of counterpoint and rising key changes and second, a chorale on a 3 note figure that imitates the three syllables of the word “Or -lan- do!”. As the work develops, the upward shifting keys lifts our spirit higher as the themes intertwine.

This is a MIDI realization of the fanfare.
