Program Notes

Edwin Franko Goldman was born in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1878, but his father died when Edwin was nine, and he and his brother and their mother (a piano teacher) moved to New York City. He received a scholarship to the National Conservatory of Music when he was thirteen, and at the age of seventeen he was playing trumpet with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. He founded the New York Military Band – later known as the Goldman Band – in 1920, when most professional bands were dying out, and his band was still going strong when he died in 1956. Like King, Goldman was a prolific writer of marches. He also encouraged and commissioned other composers to write works for band and helped raise performance standards during many visits to schools.
