The Century College Concert Band is playing Rosetta Fanfare at the 2017 BandWidth Music Festival in Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA. It will be at the Landmark Center in Saint Paul on Sunday 30 April 2017.
As I was writing a short, thirty-second fanfare for trumpet and piano, the Rosetta space probe launched by the European Space Agency was approaching comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. Later in 2016, as I expanded that short fanfare as a work for wind band, the Rosetta mission came to an end when the space probe was crashed into the comet. It seemed appropriate to name the new work Rosetta Fanfare.
