This current volume of Sousa's music for wind band presents three exceptional examples of Sousa's musical creativity. Chris and the Wonderful Lamp is an enchanting retelling of the Aladdin legend, while Showing Off Before Company is a clever routine Sousa often used to open matinee concerts. The painstaking reconstruction of Sisterhood of the States allows us to hear the 'ballet' that incorporated music from each of the 48 states for a spectacular show in 1916.
Chris and the Wonderful Lamp (arr. M. Purton for wind band) (excerpts)
Sisterhood of the States (reconstructed by M.A. Arambula for wind band)
