American Patriotic. 20th Century. Written for the bicentennial observance at Gramercy Park, New York City. A decidedly "un-corny" treatment of this popular patriotic tune. A short work, but quite a bit longer than the Fanfare title might suggest. Interesting to play and approachable to all audiences. Very similar (but not exact) to the work of the same title for woodwind quintet.
American Dance Music was commissioned by Rhythm and Brass in 1995. McCarthy was asked to compose a piece that would be musically challenging for the group and appealing to audiences. Thus, such a work was written by McCarthy that celebrates uniquely American music popularized by American dance crazes.

21st Century (2008). Trois Hommages is just that - an homage in three movements to a few composers who have inspired me over the years. Bela Bartok's gorgeous brass chorale from his Concerto for Orchestra was the inspiration for the first movement, Duke Ellington's exotic jazz-noir writing suggested the second movement's Danse Macabre, and Sergei Prokofiev's diabolically clever modulations in the Gavotte from his Classical Symphony were the jumping-off points for the third movement's Gigue, with ...
"Dynasty" is a bold and exciting symphonic march. A contrasting theme and powerful low lines keep the energy up throughout this piece. Lightly articulated passages contrast the big, brassy sound, making this fun to play and to listen to. -the publisher

"Ceremonious" is a processional piece that focuses on the first seven notes learned in most method books. It is a great way to teach young performers about articulations, relationships between the instruments, and their role within the ensemble. All parts are easy to learn, so less time can be spent on learning the music, and more time can be focused on dynamic contrast and balance, articulations, and tone control.
