Program Notes

Although not as well-known as other Fillmore marches, His Excellency is truly one of his very best. Great melodies, unexpected harmonic twists, and fine writing for all instruments will make this a band favorite. Schissel has added his expertise to this score, clarifying articulations and dynamics to make this the standard edition.

- Program Note from publisher

This arrangement is dedicated to Harry Pfingsten, an extraordinary musician, educator and friend.
