Program Notes Jumpstart Fanfare is a musical toast to new beginnings and fresh starts. Commissioned by the Crossings Christian School Band, under the direction of Michael Brown, the piece was written to commemorate a new auditorium being built at their school, but is suitable for any occasion. Jumpstart Fanfare has several sections with various rhythm changes, dynamics, and sound effects. The first section introduces a bold theme that pushes the past all the way to the slower section marked “with feeling.” In this section, as the rehearsal suggestion implies, introduces an emotional punch before driving full force into a juxtaposed version of the opening theme. Dynamics are important to follow in the middle, slow section.
