Scotsmen Fanfare (2000)

Scotsmen Fanfare for marching band

My friend and fellow CMU percussion alum Dave Zerbe wanted a new fanfare for the Kiltie Marching Band at his new place of employment, Alma College. I undertook the task of creating my first real MB arrangement, using the famous Scotland the Brave as the basis for this explosive fanfare. The idea here is very similar to the CMU pregame show: the Alma band would highstep onto the field with short bursts of brass fanfare, interspersed with percussion breaks which allow for announcements and introductions from the pressbox.
