for an Academic Occasion
Score and Parts
Instrumentation - 4 Bb Trumpets, 4 F Horns, 3 Trombones + Bass, 2 Baritones, Tuba
Continuing with the "For a..." fanfare series set for brass choir, For an Academic Occasion takes the very nostalgic folk tune of Annie Lisle (commonly used for many university alma maters) and builds off of it in different ways. First in a canonic fashion and then in broader statements. The development takes a character of searching until it eventually finds itself in D major. The ending coda signals the collective educational power and wisdom that stem from professors, students, and our own Alma Maters(generous mother of wisdom).
