About the Flexible Adaptable Instrumentation Version
The flexible adaptable instrumentation version of "Fanfare for a New Era" features numerous alterations from the non-flexible version. It has been reduced to five parts, which can be covered by a variety of instruments depending on the makeup of your high school concert band or middle school concert band.
The 16th note runs and melodies in the non-flexible version have been removed or modified for this flexible version to make this version more accessible for players with a wider range of abilities.
While great consideration was given in regard to instrument ranges, it may be that some players should play a note or phrase in a different octave that is more comfortable for them. The arrangement and parts offer suggestions for this in the form of an upper and lower octave note option at times.
