Celebrating Akron with a new fanfare

Tuesday Musical’s Myers New Music Fund has commissioned internationally acclaimed composer Peter Boyer to create and conduct the world premiere of Fanfare for Akron to open our Akron Bicentennial Concert featuring the brass and percussion sections of The Cleveland Orchestra, led by TCO principal trumpet Michael Sachs. (Plus, working with 6-time Grammy-winner Elaine Martone, we’re professionally recording Fanfare for Akron for enduring, open-access use at Akron civic events.)

Watch Michael Sachs perform.
