Program Notes

This classic Henry Fillmore march is considered one of his finest. His Honor is one of Fillmore’s “fast and fun” circus style marches, containing his classic whimsical look at the world. Since its premiere in 1933, It has become one of Fillmore's most popular marches.

- Program Note by publisher


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.
