  The Goossens Fanfares    

During the 1942–43 season, CSO Music Director Eugene Goossens invited various composers to submit fanfares to be performed at subscription concerts. The composers seem mostly to be Americans, several later became well known. The only fanfare currently in the repertoire is Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man. The titles salute various aspects of the war effort. Also during the season, national anthems from Allied countries opened the concerts.
