Composed by Dr. Scott Eggert
Fanfare was commissioned by the College especially for today’s inauguration ceremony. The piece begins with swirls of trumpet activity, which lead to a broad, striding theme in the horn, suggesting the weight of the occasion and the forward-looking nature of the day. The swirls of trumpet activity return and, amid clashing summons from the other instruments, lead back to the horn theme, and a shining conclusion.
