Genesys Fanfare was written for and performed by the members of the Brass and Percussion sections of the Flint Symphony Orchestra. Later the work was rescored for full orchestra and ultimately for concert band in this present arrangement. This band version was first performed in 2016 by the combined Wind Ensembles of Texas Lutheran University conducted by Beth Bronk. The musical ideas for this fanfare are straightforward--the theme is a rhythmic representation of the name of the institution that commissioned the piece – Genesys Hospital. The asymmetrical repetition of the spoken rhythm however yields a refreshingly compelling pulse which drives the music all the way through.
