Program Notes

Henry Fillmore wrote this gem in 1919, under the pseudonym of Harold Bennett. It's just one of many great pieces he has contributed to the band world, and this arrangement allows bands at all levels to perform and enjoy it. It's one of Fillmore's gifts to American music education!

-Program Note by publisher


Courage March by Henry Fillmore, arranged by Nicholas J. Contorno. was composed in 1919 by Fillmore under the pseudonym Harold Bennett. The work begins in Eb major and modulates to Ab major at the trio following traditional march form. Originally included in Book No. 3 from the then well-known Bennett Band Book Series, this new edition does not contain the technical demands of some of Fillmore’s better known marches such as His Honor, Men of Ohio, and Americans We, but does demonstrate his gift for creating interesting melodies and countermelodies. Introduce your musicians to this significant march master.
