    Festival Fanfare for Christmas - Wasson

    This is a fairly new arrangement for concert band by John Wasson (2014). We started rehearsing this last week for our upcoming holiday concerts. The recording (linked below) is by the Dallas Winds with Jerry Junkin conducting. It has an impressive trumpet fanfare (4 parts?) in the beginning.

    IMHO a great way to open a holiday concert and just under 4 mins long.

    ... The arr. includes organ - but we're not using organ.
