Composing the Inaugural Fanfare

October 24, 2013

Inaugural Brass FanfareThe inauguration of Dr. Steven R. DiSalvo as the tenth president of Saint Anselm College was a college wide event that included everyone in the college community. One unique aspect to the event was the official fanfare "Vers L'Avenir" (Toward the Future), composed by Assistant Professor of Fine Arts Dr. Francis Kayali. In late July of this year, he was invited to compose a brass fanfare for the inauguration and spent one month putting it together with the help of friends from the University of Southern Maine.

Read Dr. Kayali's blog post and watch the Norumbega Ensemble perform the fanfare.
