S003 The Washington Post - Sousa, J.P. (PDF DOWNLOAD)


One of Sousa's most famous Marches, this piece was originally written at the request of the Washington Post newspaper, and led to him being dubbed "The March King". This is a sparkling and entertaining arrangement which makes good use of the marching band style Piccolo. It's just as much fun with a small ensemble or a massed choir.
