A Festival Prelude

Alfred Reed’s A Festival Prelude was composed in 1956 for the 25th Anniversary of the Tri-State Music Festival, located in Enid, Oklahoma. The music is built up entirely from one main theme and two fanfare-like figures that occur throughout the score. The composer writes “the music was to establish a bright and brilliant mood throughout, with no other connotation in mind.” (Source: Published Score)
