The Dallas Wind Symphony fanfare competition winners.
The composers whose fanfares were chosen range from twenty-one-year-olds to veteran college deans. Of the seven, three currently are deans or music directors at universities, and two are public school band directors or music instructors. All are active, often prolific, composers and performers.
The seven pieces selected represent a range of styles, according to Associate Conductor David T. Kehler, and were chosen in part for the acoustics of the lobby where they are performed.
The fanfares chosen for the coming season's concerts include "Seekers of the Truth" by Jack Siegel, Miami, Florida; "Intrada" by Laurie J. Kunzle, Hewitt, New Jersey; "The Guardian" by Frank T. Darmiento, Scottsdale, Arizona; "Olympics Fanfare" by Robert Washburn, Potsdam, New York; "Fanfare to Superheroes," by George Shaw, Los Angeles, California; "The Heart of It All" by Thomas P. Rohrer, Logan, Utah; and "Sacred Ground" by Marvin Lamb, Norman, Oklahoma.
