Program Notes

Some of Fillmore's marches, overtures and novelty pieces were composed especially for his own band of professional musicians, organized in 1927 in Cincinnati. His Honor, composed in 1933 and published the following year, was one such favorite of both his band members and audiences alike. The title refers to Mayor Russell Wilson, a man who impressed the composer with his sense of humor as well as his executive ability. With its unexpected melodic and rhythmic changes and its various performance possibilities, His Honor is still one of Fillmore's most popular marches.
