Program Notes:
      Fanfare XXV: The Silver Jubilation was written expressly for the Jubilation '97 Flute Orchestra as the opening fanfare for The National Flute Association 25th Anniversary Convention. Penny Fischer, conductor of the Jubilation '97 Flute Orchestra, is Director of Flute Ensembles at the Ann Arbor School for the Performing Arts, and Past President (1992-94), Program Chair (1991, Washington, D.C.) of The National Flute Association. Special thanks are extended to Carol Kniebusch Noe, professor of flute at James Madison University, for recommending the composer for this most noteworthy project. 
      The fanfare opens on a festive note with a series of staggered trills that build to a rich, extended-harmonic sonority based on perfect fourths–an interval which is used prominiently throughout the piece. Rounding out the introduction is a brief modulating passage with recurrent rhythmic patterns in the lower flutes, along with piccolo and upper-flute flourishes and a bass flute feature. Styled in march-like fashion, the fanfare theme is presented in the upper flutes, accompanied by active rhythmic figures in the lower flutes, a walking bass line and occasional piccolo flourishes. A short trio passage follows, introducing some colorful harmonic shifts. The bridge section briefly features the alto and bass flutes, followed by a circle progression featuring piccolos and upper flutes. The circle progression facilitates a modulation to a higher key for the return of the fanfare theme.
