Roger Cichy, composer
Fanfare for a Festive Day is a short fanfare for concert band
composed by Roger Cichy based largely on the four opening pitches: G, C, D,
and F, played in ascending order.
Roger Cichy is a freelance composer and arranger who has written more than
200 compositions and arrangements for all levels of bands and orchestras.
The Concord Band has selected Mr. Cichy to compose a major new work to
celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Band.
It is fitting that we begin this two-year celebration with a work by
Roger Cichy and end the celebration in March of 2009 with the world premier
of his newest work composed for the Concord Band.
