Program Notes

George Washington Suite is based on three tunes known to have been composed for (or about) George and Martha Washington in their own time. Probably the best known of the three is the first, Washington's Grand March, believed to have been written by Francis Hopkinson, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. The second movement has the delightful title Fancy Menuit with figure Dance by Two young Ladies in the presance of Mrs. Washington in 1792. Phila. (sic) A fife-and-drum style arrangement of Brandywine Quickstep completes this early American triptych.
