Catalog numbers: 

SMC S997FS/ HL 348186

Duration (minutes): 
Detailed Instrumentation: 
Concert Band
Written in a quick two, this "Show-Style Opener" lives up to its title with much of the thematic materials in the opening theme falling to the brass while the woodwinds interject flourishes and counterpoints.  The woodwinds come to the fore during the middle section until the brass take over again when the original theme returns, leading to a rousing finish.
