Festival Fanfare

This fanfare was written for a symphonic wind band festival held at Liverpool Hope University in November 2015. It is constructed so that shorter sections may be used independently for other occasional events, such as graduation ceremonies. It bears the dedication για Ευτέρπη (for Euterpe) – in honour of the Muse of Music.

The Festival Fanfare is a work of practical use, originally for wind band but playable (with additional strings) by a large orchestra. Details of various performance possibilities are listed in the score.
