Exaltation Fanfare is a celebration of triumph over obstacles and the excitement of reaching one’s goals and dreams. When one is pursuing a goal in life, no matter how small or large it is, there are inevitably going to be struggles and trying circumstances that will get in your way as you strive for your dreams. But when you eventually reach that goal, there are no words to describe the exhilaration of reaching it. You enter a state of peace that you cannot describe.
This piece represents the initial charge to pursue a dream, and as time goes on, it can seem like the goal gets to be unattainable as circumstances in life beyond your control can drag you down. However, through perseverance and never giving up, one can reach that dream. This piece represents a person’s wishes, dreams, desires, the struggles along the way to get there, and then the final satisfaction of attainment as you power through the hard times by never giving up.
Exaltation Fanfare is to be performed with unbridled energy and passion – it will be sure to be an incredible opener or closing piece to one’s concert, whether it is a festival, a spring concert, or if there is just a need for an exciting piece in your program. It will definitely captivate the audience with the energy and dramatics that this piece can deliver!
