Program Notes

John N. Klohr (1869-1956) was a prolific composer of marches whose primary claim to fame is this 1901 classic circus march. The first two strains of this lively piece are delightful, but the acclaim of this march rests on the instant recognizability of the trio theme, used for years as an introduction to countless entertainment acts of every sort (arid often sung with lyrics that one might refer to as “inappropriate”). Andrew Balent’s version of this beloved selection is well-adapted to the capabilities of young school musicians, and the result will be great fun for them to play.
