In Pursuit Of Excellence
This major work clocks in at 7.25. The opening fanfare is followed with fast syncopated melodic fragments that lead to the main tune. Then a slow lyrical section with solos for oboe and flute, that returns later as a chorale. Every section is featured and challenged so it's a fantastic choice to show off your senior high school or community band. Commissioned by Knox Grammar School (directed by James Brice) in 2014. Please check out the fantastic recording by the Castle Hill RSL Youth Wind Orchestra!
Former test piece for the 2017 NSW State Band Championships - Junior B Grade. Was to be the test piece for Open C Grade for the National Band Championships in 2021.
