Flying Fortress

A Fanfare for Band

Robert W. Smith

  • Grade: 3
  • Time: 1:52
  • Series: RWS Concert Band Series
  • Brand: RWS Music Company
  • Year: 2019

This stunning fanfare by veteran composer Robert W. Smith was inspired by the historic and legendary Boeing B-17 aircraft used by the United States Army Air Corps in World War II. Beginning with a powerful timpani statement, the brass section responds with a bold introductory theme. Strong melodic lines interacting with woodwind flourishes make this piece sound more mature and difficult than the grade level indicates. We highly recommend this majestic fanfare for any concert, festival or ceremonial performance!
