Glorious 100th
NMPL114
for brass and percussion
by Louis Applebaum

Glorious 100th was first played to launch the gala celebrations commemorating the 100th anniversary of Massey Hall, a venerable Toronto landmark in the Canadian musical scene. Commissioned by The Founders’ Fund of the Corporation of Massey Hall/Roy Thomson Hall, Glorious 100th was performed at the June 14, 1994, gala evening by the brass and percussion players of the Toronto Symphony under the direction of Victor Feldbrill.

Massey Hall, affectionately known as “The Grand Old Lady of Shuter Street,” has been acclaimed as one of the best concert halls in the world. It is the original home of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir (which first performed there in 1895), and over the years has been the site of concerts by a wide range of performers in a variety of styles—from orchestras and opera companies to small ensembles and soloists, from classical through jazz to rock.

The instrumentation for this piece is flexible.
