Program Notes

John Philip Sousa's march From Maine to Oregon was composed in 1913. The march is credited to Sousa's operetta The American Maid. This patriotic production was the last of Sousa's operettas to be produced. This rousing march is not heard often today, perhaps because of its difficulty.

This edition was prepared from the original Sousa parts. The editor made no changes in either notes or orchestration, but prepared these materials in order to clarify and make consistent articulation and dynamic qualities. It was done by Timothy Rhea for the 1997 spring tour of the Texas A & M University Symphonic Band.

- Program Note from publisher

Sousa's "All American" operetta, The American Maid (The Glass Blowers), contains one recurring march theme, the title of which does not appear in the list of songs. Perhaps the publishers made this arrangement so that "reprise" would not appear so many times. The theme is the nucleus around which Sousa built the march From Maine to Oregon. The march, like the operetta, met with only limited success.
