Program Notes

On the cover of the conductor's manuscript to this humoresque, Sousa wrote:"Look for the Silver Lining (Kern) and some extra wadding; Put together by John Philip Sousa."

Based on the song of the same name and other songs from the musical play Sally, by Jerome Kern, this work includes several melodic variations and appropriate sound effects. Also included ate There is a Tavern in the Town and Stein Song.
