A stunning concert opener, this exciting work opens with a simple thematic statement from the trumpets [or optional solo trumpet], then takes off with pulsating percussion and low brass. The theme continues to rise to the occasion, incorporating hemiola in 6/8 time, rhythmic ostinato and fanfare, culminating in a triumphant conclusion for your performers to "Seize the Day." Carpe Diem!
