Program Notes

Farrar composed this march in 1896, the year he was employed to organize a state band in Indiana. Contrary to current speech usage, the march title did not refer to what was then Indiana State Teachers College and is now Indiana State University. Around the turn of the century (and later) there were numerous "official state bands," including those in Connecticut, Ohio, Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota Montana dna New York.
