[NOTE: You can also hear this fanfare of mine in the movie, "The Dresser" (2015), starring Anthony Hopkins and Ian McKellen. www.youtube.com/watch
This is an example of one of the fanfares that I play on the herald trumpet before a grand entrance occurs. I often play this fanfare (and similar ones) before the bride enters at a wedding. I have also played these types of fanfares before entrances or keynote speeches of various celebrities, including movie stars, television stars, theatrical stars, featured celebrity musical guests, U.S. presidents, corporate presidents and CEOs.
But, since anyone can hire me, I have also played entrance fanfares for many non-celebrities, such as for the arrival of guests at private parties or for a special guest of honor who is being celebrated or is having a celebration.
These types of fanfares are not only great for announcing people, but also work well for announcing grand openings, new products, new advertising campaigns, corporate banquets and meetings, special events, special sales, etc., and I have performed fanfares for these types of events many times.
Although I most often perform as a solo heralding trumpeteer, sometimes clients prefer to hire two herald trumpeteers for an even grander and an even richer-sounding effect. (I once even performed at an event with an ensemble of eight herald trumpeteers.)
Royal trumpet fanfares are not just for royalty--they are for anyone who wants to make a grand entrance that has real impact, leaving a lasting memory and unique impression on those who are in attendance.
