Program Notes

For the 1914 gambol of the celebrated Lambs Club of New York, Sousa composed this march and The Lambs' Gambol overture. He also accompanied a group of club members on a fund-raising tour of the major eastern cities. In each city he led a parade and apparently acted as musical director for their stage presentations.

Once again Sousa lived up to his reputation of not letting his music go to waste; much of The Lambs' March was taken from his unsuccessful 1882 operetta, The Smugglers.
