Program Notes

Roland Seitz dedicated this march to Thomas Preston Brooke. Brooke organized a civilian band in Chicago in 1893. Known as Brooke’s Chicago Marine Band, it enjoyed immense popularity for nearly 20 years. Brooke was known as The Popular Music King because of his policy of programming lighter music almost exclusively.
