This is an attention getting number. It will require a good high D in the first trumpet part but everything else is easy to play. Solos has been passed around to the first, second and third players. The keys are easy and the contrapuntal writing is the main focus of the arrangement. It opens with a short fanfare and continues to build to the end.
