Clocktower Fanfare (2016)
Commissioned by Dr. Aaron Durst and the University of Wisconsin–Stout Symphonic Band
Concert band, Grade 3
Clocktower Fanfare (originally titled With Tower High) was commissioned by the University of Wisconsin–Stout in Menomonie, Wisconsin to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the founding of the campus. The name comes from the familiar chimes of the Westminster Quarters, the melody run by the clock tower of UW–Stout's Bowman Hall, and features melodies from the UW–Stout fight song and alma mater. The piece was premiered by Aaron Durst and the UW–Stout Symphonic Band on April 16, 2016.
