Program Notes

Australia may be the world's smallest continent, but it is nevertheless about the same size as the continental United States and nearly 50 percent larger than Europe. Gippsland is a rich farming district in the state of Victoria. Although it occupies less than three percent of the total area of Australia, Victoria has more than 27 percent of the population. Melbourne, with its population approaching 2,800,000, is the commonwealth's second largest city and is the capital of the state. Gippsland's chief farming products are wheat, oats, barley, potatoes, hay, citrus fruits, peaches, and grapes.

Gippsland March was reported written as a "mark of appreciation" to the district for beginning a band association in 1910, even though, a year later, "it appears to have died – a most inglorious death through decay."
