9781432741051: The Legendary Sousa Band: 40 Years from Plainfield to Atlantic City, 1892-1931

It was arguably, the greatest and most popular musical organization during the late 19th and early 20th century in America, the “golden age” of professional touring bands. This was SOUSA’S BAND, formed by the illustrious composer and previous bandmaster of the United States Marine Band, John Philip Sousa some 115 years ago. It was to be the most dominant musical group throughout America for 40 years. It was the prototype of concert bands and had no peers over its entire history.
The 50-member band of the most select instrumentalists available, began in 1892 in Plainfield, New Jersey, touring practically every town and city in North America and many in Europe, South Africa, and Australia as well, and culminating in 1931 in Atlantic City, covering an amazing 1.3 million miles only by railroad, bringing music to the masses who wanted to be entertained, in over 15 thousand concerts.
This book tells the story of this legendary group which leaves us with a very important legacy that should be of great interest to readers.
