|“Sun Valley Flourish” is Steven Reineke at his best! Originally composed for orchestra in 2008 as the opening piece for the Erich Kunzel’s Sun Valley Festival Orchestra， it has been masterfully adapted for concert band by Steven’s first composition professor， David Shaffer. Written in the style of a fanfare/overture， this exciting work opens with brass fanfares and woodwind flourishes. Typical of Steven’s writing， the main theme of the piece is a beautiful and flowing melody complimented by masterfully written counter melodies and spectacular in-your-face brass punctuations. The lyrical middle section is simple but quite musically effective leading into the fast and powerful finale. If you are fan of Steven Reineke’s music， “Sun Valley Flourish” is a must-have!
