Composer Note
Fifth Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman (for four trumpets), written for Joan Harris, was commissioned by the Aspen Music Festival on the occasion of the opening of the Joan and Irving Harris Concert Hall on August 20, 1993. This fanfare is the fifth in a series dedicated to “uncommon” women — women who take risks and are adventurous in their actions and goals.
