Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman
Opus 36 (2014)
For Brass Quintet
A very short brass quintet dedicated to Gabrielle Giffords.
Gabby was our congresswoman from Arizona who I had the great privilege of meeting on 3 occasions prior to the tragic events of January 2011. In each of those meetings I was very impressed with her dedication and honesty.
Gabby, I dedicate this piece to you - a truly uncommon woman of character, strength, valor, dignity and beauty.
