In celebration of the fifth anniversary of the Southern California Brass Consortium, Maffe was commissioned to write the opening for a concert which featured some highlights of the band's performances from over the years.
On February 16, "Fanfare for the Vanguard" was premiered. The piece features feverish trumpet rhythms, soaring melodies, and a grand finale fitting of the momentous occasion.
Some other composers featured on and present at the concert: Rossano Galante, Craig Safan, and Costas Dafnis.
