Aurora Fanfare & Dance (2022)
Instrumentation: clarinet quartet
Duration: 5 minutes
Aurora Fanfare & Dance was composed for the Aurora School of Music Clarinet Ensemble, a group of talented, advanced high school musicians led by the clarinet faculty, Jennifer Magistrelli. Knowing their skill and musicianship from several past performances, I wrote this work with great enthusiasm and joy! It is celebratory and energetic with an array of influences including the music of Paul Hindemith, Francis Poulenc, Stevie Wonder, Mario Kart, and musical theater.
