Written during the Covid-19 pandemic, Plaza Fanfare was written to celebrate the new Plaza Rapid Transit station in Winnipeg, Canada. Due to the nature of social distancing, Plaza Fanfare was composed initially for 5 players (3 trumpets, timpani, and snare drum) who spread out along the southbound platform and were conducted from the northbound platform.

Instrumentation, SATB parts for:
  • Flute, Oboe, Bassoon, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Baritone Sax
  • Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium (bass clef and Bb), Tuba
  • Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass
  • Percussion (optional): Mallet Percussion (Marimba, Vibraphone, Xylophone), Suspended Cymbal, Timpani
  • Piano (optional)

Performance Notes
  • Should your performance include the any (or any combination of) the optional piano or percussion part the 4th part (bass) isn't required but may still be performed
  • Experimenting and exploring instrumentation, muting, etc. is encouraged!

Adaptable Ensemble Notes
As part of the Creative Repertoire Initative I have written/re-worked several pieces that are for an adaptable/flexible ensembles (for band and string instruments) a response to the challenges to music performance and education that have been created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The idea behind these pieces is that, no matter the issues we face moving in to the 2020/21 academic year, there will be repertoire for players of all levels to learn and play together, be it in person, a hybrid-model, etc..

Each piece has been arranged in to 4 voices (S,A,T,B) and scored so that each instrument in your ensemble can play any part (i.e. flute 1 4, French Horn 1 4, Tuba 1 4 etc.). There are optional percussion parts in every piece and several of the pieces also have optional piano parts. There are also works with electronics too! Also included in the set will be a score for each instrument (e.g. a 4-part score for trombone, a 4-part score for clarinet, etc..), as well as a score in C complete with all of the percussion parts.

Experimentation with, and exploring of, instrumentation, colours, and textures is encouraged, and octave changes, where appropriate are possible.
