Fanfare con Spirito is a fanfare written for advanced elementary or middle school band. While the work has repeating themes, there are rhythms that will provide an appropriate challenge for this age level. There are two distinct themes - the fanfare in the trumpets, which reappears at the end, as well as the main theme, which is treated in a call and response fashion many times throughout the piece. This energetic and fun piece will be a nice challenge, but yet accessible for many groups.
