Program Notes

Another classic Sousa march edited by the noted Sousa and march authority Frank Byrne, this work is presented with all of the class and integrity for which the Frank Byrne Editions are known. They are based on meticulous research by one of the leading experts in this field.

The Sousa Band enjoyed its longest single engagement from September 30, 1915, to June 4, 1916, in an extravaganza presented in the New York Hippodrome. Sousa wrote this march in commemoration of that engagement.

- Program Note by publisher


The Sousa Band's longest single engagement, from September 30, 1915, to June 4, 1916, was when it was featured in the Hip Hip Hooray extravaganza at the New York Hippodrome. Sousa wrote this march in commemoration of that engagement, and it was dedicated to Charles B. Dillingham, manager of the famous old theater. In a salute to Sousa on his sixty-first birthday, Dillingham arranged to have over two hundred theater orchestras around the country play the march at precisely the same time.
