Program Notes

The Sousa Band enjoyed its longest single engagement, from September 30, 1915, to June 4, 1916, when it was featured in the Hip Hip Hooray extravaganza presented in the New York Hippodrome. Sousa wrote this march in commemoration of that engagement, and i was dedicated to Charles B. Dillingham, manager of the famous old theater. In a salute to Sousa on his sixty-first birthday, Dillingham arranged to have over two hundred Theater orchestras around the country play the march at precisely the same time.

- Program Note from John Philip Sousa: A Descriptive Catalog of His Works.

A "barn-burner" from the Big Apple, Sousa's hustle-bustle march captures both the brilliant, restless energy and the soaring lyrical themes inspired by mid-town Manhattan in 1915. It's arranged here with all of the style, excitement and vividly colorful details of the Sousa Band's own performances at the Hippodrome Theater, a predecessor of today's Radio City Music Hall.
