This will be the landmark piece of the year for your solid grade 3 band. A bold fanfare opening soon warms with the stately clarinets. Subtle reflection on the fanfare statement permeates the development of the piece, keeping the city's heroism and self-sacrifice in mind as the piece traverses its many moods. James Curnow's skillful orchestration allows the director endless opportunities to take the band's level of performance to higher levels.
