Spartan Fanfare for brass and percussion was written for my wonderful colleagues in the Michigan State University College of Music. The fanfare is an arrangement of material from the finale sections of my orchestral pieces Dance the Dream Awake and Strange, Beautiful Noises, which I had long wanted to adapt into a short fanfare for brass and percussion.
