Program Notes

Band director and radio presenter Yutaka Nishida hails from Tokyo and has long been a friend of composer Philip Sparke. As well as conducting bands and teaching, he also presents a weekly two-hour music program, focusing on both brass and concert bands, on the Japanese national radio station, Digital Radio Musicbird.The program is called The Bandwagon. and the radio station commissioned Philip Sparke to write a march which could be used as a theme tune for the program. The result is this bright and breezy march in simple ABA form.
