Inauguration Day

Happy Inauguration Day!

If you follow this blog, my feelings about this are no surprise to you.

I watched the inauguration with a few hundred of my neighbors at the local cinema -- quite an experience. It's been hard to pull myself away from the coverage, even after coming home.

I wrote this canon a few days ago (knowing I wouldn't get much done today). It's a canon on Hail to the Chief. The upper two parts (trumpets) are a canon at the unison on the theme and the two trombone parts are augmentation of the first half of the first phrase.

For another musical response to the significance of the day, please check out my friend, Seth Austen's lovely new fiddle tune, 20th of January.
