Wedding Fanfare No. 1
Composer: Olcott, James L.
Number of Trumpets: 6
Accompaniment: timpani (optional)
Key: Bb Major concert
Duration: 45 seconds
One of the most often played fanfares by the Cincinnati Herald Trumpet Ensemble. Majestic, full, broad, strong, and effective, but not difficult to rehearse or perform. One of the pieces reviewed in the ITG Journal as part of the CHTE Collection.
ITG Journal, December, 1990, page 28:
(The Wedding Fanfare No. 1 is among) "...nine extremely attractive and useful arrangements for trumpet ensembles of from five to nine parts.... simple, straightforward, and require a minimum of rehearsal time. They do not make extreme demands in terms of range or endurance...music is clearly printed, with no awkward page turns. (Olcott) demonstrates his usual expert arranging skill in providing as much variety and melodic interest as possible in the inner parts while rotating the melody among the players."
