    FANFARE FOR THE AGES-complete

    Here is mostly what the final work will sound like.
    Do you think being 3 seconds too long is fatal?
    Thanks for listening.

    Hi, Gary

    I see/hear that you've done a lot more work on this. I think it's unique, and an interesting departure from what we usually think of as a "fanfare." There's an easy going, meandering kind of play between the instruments which sounds genial to me.

    3 Seconds too long? Do you mean that for this contest, 3 minutes is supposed to be the maximum? On the Sound Click player, it looked like it was ending exactly at 3:00--but maybe that timer isn't very accurate?

    If you're really concerned, perhaps you could indicate optional cuts in the score, so that there's a short and long version available simultaneously? I feel that a version of about half the length would be quite effective, so maybe you could make that available.

    Thanks for posting the final version--Best of luck in the competition!

    Thanks Randy,
    I'm reminded occasionally of advice I received about the programming of a concert from a more experienced Bands Director during my first year of teaching.
    "In order to be immortal, one need not be eternal."

    Gary, this is quite well done (other than for about three
    seconds of it, apparently... rofl). Listening on monitors,
    this is one of the few times I've heard anyone really
    effectively and convincingly pull off an antiphonal
    separation like this.

    And seriously: a.) I don't think anyone is going to hold
    you that tightly to 3:00, in that performance times with
    a live ensemble vary all over the block, anyway; and b.)
    this is about four seconds under, at least by my wristwatch.

    Many good wishes in the competition, Gary!

    My best,
