One of the fanfares played by the herald trumpets this morning was the opening statement for a 1970s DCI finalist. Name that corps.

This wasn't what I had in mind when I posted. On inauguration day, I heard a herald trumpet fanfare that was used by the 1973 and 1977 Racine Kilties in their opener. I think it was when the vice presidents were being announced.

According to corpsrep.com, Kilties played this in 1977;

McDuffy's March * Heaven on Their Minds (from Jesus Christ Superstar) * Pagliacci * Music

Nothing mentioned about Fanfare for the Common Man.

And in 1973 they played these selections;

McDuffy's March * God Save the Queen Amazon * Roundabout * Eli's Comin' * McCoy's Exit * Auld Lang Syne

Again, no mentioning of FFTCM.

Not sure where you're getting FFTCM from. I made no mention of it in my note. There were plenty of other brass fanfares while dignitaries were being announced, and one of them was the opening fanfare the Kilts used in McDuffy's March in 1973 and 1977. The fanfare, roughly ten measures long, was originally Scottish, and was used in the Edinburg Tattoo.

From reading the link I provided, it staes the herald trumpets played "Fanfare for the Common Man."

You did say, "One of the fanfares played by the herald trumpets this morning was the opening statement..."
