Butler Pops Fanfare – Premiere

In September, I received a commission from the Austin Symphony Orchestra to compose a short fanfare to open the concerts of their Sarah & Ernest Butler Pops Series. I completed the piece in the 2nd week of October and the Butler Pops Fanfare was given it’s premiere performance at the Butler Pops season opener “Superheroes” on Friday, October 18, 2013 in Dell Hall at the Long Center for the Performing Arts!

The performance of Klezmer Holiday at the University of Texas CLUTCH Concert on Monday, October 7, 2013 was great! Thanks to my friends who put that together – it was a real blast to play that piece again. Fellow UT composer Steve Sachse took some great photos of the concert and I wanted to share one:
