Boyer’s SILVER FANFARE opens the 2016 Hollywood Bowl Season

Boyer-Hwood-BowlPeter Boyer’s Silver Fanfare will open the Hollywood Bowl’s 2016 season, for the second year in a row, as the piece chosen to begin Opening Night at the Bowl with Steely Dan on June 18. The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, conducted by Thomas Wilkins, will perform Boyer’s work while a video montage from past Bowl Opening Nights is projected. Silver Fanfare also opened the 2015 Bowl season in the same fashion, at a sold-out gala concert headlined by iconic rock band Journey.
