Commissioned by Hamamatsu City
Premiered on 13 May 2007

When my hometown of Hamamatsu became a consolidated metro area, a new city song was commissioned, with words by Nozomu Hayashi and music by myself. This concert march is based on the city song. Halfway into the march, the city song appears as a 12/8 melody.

 

The main section of the march has a signal bugle as used to promote the annual Hamamatsu Festival in the month of May. The people of Hamamatsu are thrilled by the sound of the bugle call so dear to their hometown.
