John Philip Sousa personified turn-of-the-century America the comparative innocence and brash energy of an advancing nation. His ever-touring band represented America across the globe and brought lively and entertaining music to hundreds of American towns. Sousas name is eternally connected with famous marches such as The Stars and Stripes Forever, but his exceptional inventiveness also saw the creation of popular operettas such as El Capitan. This program also includes Sousas adaptations of humorous songs and popular ballads as well as his Good-Bye, based on the idea of Haydns Farewell Symphony but with a modern twist.
