Hawkeye Festival Overture begins with a bright opening fanfare which leads to a rhythmic Allegro section. An Andante section in 3/4 time features a lyric trumpet solo and numerous harmonic suspensions. A driving percussion interlude in 5/4 with a gradual pyramid that builds in the winds leads to a return of the Allegro. The work ends with a powerful re-statement of the syncopated 5/4 motives and finishes with a flourish. This very appealing work is well-suited for developing concert bands and should provide excellent opportunities for studies in general musicianship, intonation and rhythmic precision.

    This song is just awesome. I love the trill. At the beggining, it starts of fan-fair-ish. With trumpets blaring and clarinets answering in a trill. Then the low brass and bari sax play this call, which the saxophones answer in a nifty little tune. Then clarinets and flutes...

    play the melody and: wow. I just love this song. It's amazing! Mark Williams ROCKS! You MUST play it! It feels like you're in a big opening of a festival thingie!
