Program Notes

The concert march March to Mars was written for a composition contest of the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (EBU). This spectacular work was composed by Julius Steffaro, a pen-name of Jan Stoeckart, who also employs several other pseudonyms: Jack Trombey, Petr Milray and Willy Faust. In this way he has been able to add a large number of works for wind band to his name.

March to Mars has been elaborated and scored by Johan de Meij, who also did the arrangements for wind band of Honky Tonk Ragtime and Cake Walk Phantasy from this composer.

- Program Note from publisher

March to Mars is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Margaret Ross, former Counseling Center Director and Professor of Counseling Services at Marietta College and a strong supporter of the College's instrumental music program and music overall.
