Fanfare for the Big Game

for Wind Ensemble or Concert Band

Duration: 3m / Grade 5

Fanfare for the Big Game is a dramatic 3-minute fanfare that evokes the spirit, energy and excitement before a big sporting event. It was written as a concert work, but could also be performed on the field or in the bleachers. 


Like most of my wind ensemble pieces (as of 2019), I originally composed the piece for Brass Band (2004), then later adapted it for Wind Band (2010). Although I love brass (being a trumpet player, myself), I feel all of my works that were originally written for brass work much better in the wind ensemble because of the timbral variety it offers. This piece is no exception.
