Description
The composer writes about his fanfare for string orchestra and snare drum: When Maestro Leonard Slatkin (in collaboration with the John and June Hechinger Foundation) commissioned me to compose a fanfare to commemorate the 25thanniversary of the Kennedy Center, I was not only honored, but I also felt very sentimental. ...
