Since 2000, the Dallas Wind Symphony has created a tradition of performing brass fanfares 15 minutes prior to curtain in the lobby of the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, Texas, for each of its subscription concerts. Our patrons eagerly gather in the lobby to hear these fanfares that have become an important part of the whole concert going experience.
Please encourage your composers or composition students to compose or submit their unpublished fanfares to the address below postmarked by July 15, 2013. Fanfares should be no longer than 3.5 minutes in length.
All composition titles will be credited in the DWS printed program with the composers name. Seven fanfares will be selected by the screening committee for performance during the 2013-2014 season.
Submissions MUST include a score, complete parts, and a sound file or recording.
The maximum ensemble of musicians is:
(Percussion as needed, but limited to a maximum of snare drum, bass drum, cymbals and two tympani)
Entries must be postmarked by July 15th, 2013 and mailed to:
