Program Notes

Short Fanfare for a Happy Occasion

Concord Band commission (1995)

William M. Toland, composer

The fanfare opens with a brief brass theme and then shifts into a light waltz (for voice-overs at outdoor concerts) and quickly returns to the brass. The theme by the brass is the opening of an overture and the waltz theme is from a caprice for band, both of which will be part of a piece called Concord Band Seasons Suite, which is still in the composition stage. The suite also includes Solstice, which is described elsewhere.
