Fanfare, for horn choir in four parts, by Robert Palmer
Fanfare, in Eb major for horn choir in four parts, was written for Randall Faust and the Western Illinois University Horn Institute, and the 41st Internation Horn Symposium, hosted at WIU. It was originally performed at the end of the opening ceremony for the symposium. A straight-forward majestic fanfare, it is perfect as an opening flourish in an ensemble concert.
Robert Palmer has studied with Michelle Stebleton at the Florida State University College of Music as a brass performance Doctor of Music student. Prior to starting at FSU, he spent two and a half years as the Director of Athletic Bands at Alderson Broaddus University.
