Program Notes

Jewell wrote a number of marches with patriotic titles. E Pluribus Unum March was composed in 1917 during the dark days of World War I. The Latin title, motto of the United States, refers to one government created from many states. It was suggested by a Continental Congress committee appointed in 1776 composed of Benjamin Franklin, John Quincy Adams, and Thomas Jefferson.

- Program Note from March Music Notes

Fred Jewell’s E Pluribus Unum march has been a staple of bands for decades, and Andy Clark’s new arrangement for the Barnhouse Build-A-Band Series finally brings this classic American march into the grasp of very small groups or bands with severe instrumentation problems.. This toe-tapping march gem will be a favorite of audiences and performers alike.
