It is with pride and gratitude that I can announce that my “Fanfare for Democracy” will be premiered on January 20, 2021 at the United States Capitol, for the Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris.
I was inspired to write on November 7, 2020 when reflecting on the democratic process. More details of that Saturday afternoon inspiration can be found here.

The fanfare will be performed by “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band, and will be conducted by Col. Jason K. Fettig.

I am honored and humbled to be a part of such an historic event.
