For the installation of Dennis C. Golden as Fontbonne's 13th president on September 23, 1995, the College commissioned the noted composer Robert Washburn to create a work for brass instruments and percussion. The piece, titled "Golden Medallion," received its first performance at the inauguration. It is used as the recessional at Fontbonne Commencements.
