Program Notes

"March of the Siamese Children" is a portrait of stateliness and elegance. This setting by Rodgers' favorite orchestrator, Robert Russell Bennett, masterfully recalls one of the most charming moments from "The King and I," the Broadway "blockbuster" from which it came.

- Program Note from liner notes of militarymusic.com Air Mobility Command Band of the Golden West CD "The Melody Shop."


This orchestral work from the 1951 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The King and I was the introductory music as the King of Siam introduces his numerous children to their new tutor, Anna.
