Begins with a short, legato introduction before moving to an opening section with a bold, memorable first theme in the trumpets which is continued by the upper woodwinds. The low brass which had been providing a solid rhythm accompaniment then get the lyrical second theme. Following a nicely contrasting center section in 3/4 which begins with a flute section soli the work recapitulates to the powerful opening theme, and dramatic ending.

    The song, Northpointe Fantasy, was something I've kept even though I hadn't played it in over two or so years on my flute. Listening to it again and re-learning it is absolutely wonderful. The song is relatively easy, although I know that [at least for the flute...

    ] it has high notes, which people tend not to learn until Intermediate band, which explains the difficulty level in my opinion. The sound is dynamic, and as a band it sounds beautiful. I hope others enjoyed it as much as I did.

    I played this piece for my winter concert and I have to say it was a lot of fun. My friends and I are still humming the tunes!
