Program Notes

Italian musicians have made significant contributions to American wind band music, especially in the early part of the 20th century. In fact, many Italian immigrant started bands in the eastern part of the United States. These bands often toured the country and performed transcriptions of opera music as well as their own military marches. Unlike the marches of John Philip Sousa, Karl King, and Henry Fillmore, Italian marches are usually more lyrical in style and performed at a slower tempo.

An Italian march originally published by the Neil A. Kjos Company in 1951, A Santa Cecelia was written for Saint Cecelia, the patron saint of music. This version, published in 1988, retains the characteristic harmonies and style of the original march.
