A Festival Prelude

Series: Hal Leonard Concert Band Series Publisher: Edward B. Marks Music Company Composer: Alfred Reed

Composed nearly 50 years ago (1957), this masterpiece from the late Alfred Reed displays his characteristic style and total command of wind band orchestration. Composed using a single theme and two fanfare figures that are woven throughout, this concise work stands out as a true classic in the repertoire. (4:30)
