Fanfare for a Festive Day

The music of Roger Cichy has been frequently performed by the Concord Band. Fanfare for a Festive Day is largely based on the four opening pitches G, C, D, and F played in ascending order. Eventually, this four-note motive is joined with additional material to become the thematic material for the fanfare. Throughout the main statement of this thematic material, changing meter patterns are used to compress the phrases, thus pushing the music ahead and increasing its forward momentum. (Published Score)
