New Era Fanfare by Randall D. Standridge. For concert band. Grade 2+. Score and set of parts. Duration 3 minutes, 6 seconds. Published by Grand Mesa Music (GC.GMM300-SET).
Start your concert off with a "wow" moment with this superlative, edgy new fanfare. The distinctive, syncopated melody will engage your audience as it drives the piece forward to a massive conclusion, and along the way a contrasting middle tune provides some very musically sumptuous moments. Adding to the very interesting sound palette of this fanfare is the creative use of synthesizer, especially effective in the "B" section adding synthesized vocal sounds. Dazzling and compelling!
