Red Hill Special March for band was transcribed by Larry Clark from the third movement of a larger work, Century’s Song, which was commissioned by the Ohio Bicentennial Commission for the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra of Columbus, Ohio, to commemorate the Ohio Bicentennial.
The ProMusica Chamber Orchestra of Columbus first performed it on February 23, 2003, with Timothy Russell, music director, conducting. The last movement is a lively march with occasional quotes from the Red Hill Special, a fiddle tune that can be heard on the recording, Folk Music of Ohio, 1938 through 1940.
