    Program Notes
    Flourishes is a spirited “tour de force” featuring the horn section. The work takes its name loosely from the use of “flourish” as a musical term in Elizabethan theatre. Here it was used to indicate the performance of music appropriate for a fanfare or celebratory moment. “With a flourish of horns and trumpets” was a common stage direction in Shakespeare’s time. As a concert overture, Flourishes captures that same musical expression of celebration and fanfare. 


    Flourishes was written for the 50th anniversary of the Festival of Winds and Percussion at Tennessee Technological University and premiered by the Tennessee Tech Symphony Band, Joseph Hermann, Conductor.
