This overture was written in memory of Dr. John Wacker, former Director of Bands at Western State University in Gunnison, Colorado, who tragically lost his life in a car accident on his way to playing a gig on his trumpet in 2014. Many aspects of Dr. Wacker’s personality are reflected in Legacy Overture, including his incredible heart, knowledge, sense of humor, and empathy. Written in a “classic” ABA overture form, the B middle section features a gorgeous trumpet solo. Your students will love preparing and performing this engaging band work!
