Program Notes

Oh, Henry! was commissioned by the OMEA (Ohio Music Education Association) District 14 Honors Band, Cincinnati, Ohio, for the 130th anniversary of Henry Fillmore’s birth. A Cincinnati native, Fillmore is celebrated as a legend in the world of concert marches and is considered a band music icon. A consummate entertainer who drew inspiration from his background as a circus musician and trombonist, Fillmore would frequently alter the performance of his marches, making each rendition new and engaging to audiences and performers alike.

Oh, Henry! is an homage to the singular style and personality of Fillmore’s impressive body of work (including his abiding love of the trombone “smear”!). It captures the spirit of the Fillmore Band with nods to some of his most well-known and beloved marches.
