Program Note

A wartime commission from Eugene Goossens stimulated the composition of a short fanfare-like piece that was played several times before falling into disuse. Jubilee has been reinstated to Copland's catalogue. Similar in style to the popular Fanfare for the Common Man, Jubilee differs in that it was composed for full orchestra.
