Commissioned for Music Director Michael Christie’s Inaugural Concert
Chorus and Orchestra/Ensemble
24 kazoos minimum (SATB: 3 Female, 2 Male)
When Michael Christie took over as Music Director of the Brooklyn Philharmonic, the orchestra asked if I could write a short fanfare. Since a large chorus was involved in the 2nd half of the program, I decided to use them as antiphonal kazoo players surrounding the audience. The piece is bright and quirky, as should befit the introduction of a new director of the unique and quirky Brooklyn Philharmonic.
