Program Notes

This is band music of a bygone era: music to accompany acrobats, wild animals and clowns. A rip-roarin' galop, this music is fun.

- Program Note adapted from publisher


Fillmore wrote his Go Galop in 1916 under the name of Will Huff, one of seven pseudonyms that he used during his composing career. As the story goes, the name Will Huff came from an argument Fillmore had with his father over the young man's direction as a composer. He father wanted him to concentrate on church music. Henry apparently said, "I will huff and puff and write my own music!" Fillmore's first published march (1903) was written under the name Will Huff.

By a strange coincidence, Will Huff turned out to be the name of a real composer who lived near Chillicothe, Ohio, and whose works were later published by the Fillmore company.
