This march was commissioned by the Burlington Concert Band to mark the 100th anniversary of the band's existence in Burlington, Canada. Written in a traditional style with a bit of a twist, The Centennial is surely a piece to be enjoyed by both the performers and the audience. The melodies are simple, singable, and memorable. There is a powerful transitional section between the main melody and contrasting trio. Finally, it includes an introduction and interlude that are similar to that of a fanfare. It's the march of a century!
