Program Notes

It is odd that this, Sousa's longest march, had about the shortest life. It was written at the request of John Barrett, director general of the second Pan-American Scientific Congress, held in Washington, .C., and was named the official march. The piece embraced national anthems of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Santo Domingo, Ecuador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Salvador, Uruguay, Venezuela, and the United States. The finale is The Star-Spangled Banner played with woodwind variations in the style of Wagner's Tannhauser Overture.
