Next to Stars and Stripes Forever, this march, universally known as "The March King," is probably the best-known march by John Philip Sousa (1854-1932). From its energetic opening through the memorable 1st strain, the tuneful second and memorable trio, this is a beloved example of march writing at its best. A perfect introduction to the 6/8 march style, this very playable version will be a great warm-up march for contest and festival. Duration: 3'
