Program Notes

Sousa marches has a banner year in 1881. Sousa had just reached his stride as leader of the U.S. Marine Band and wrote six that year. Two of these, Guide Right and Right Forward, were written from parade use, ad their names were derived from marching commands. Both were dedicated to a Captain R.S. Collum of the Marine Corps.
