Washington Post
Sousa, JP

Musicians Publications presents John Phillip Sousa's ‘Washing Post March’ arranged for flute choir by Bill Holcombe. Scored for 4 C flutes, alto flute, and bass flute, this arrangement also includes optional parts for cello, bassoon, or bass clarinet, as well as an optional drum set part.

’This march was written in 1889 to help promote an essay contest sponsored by the newspaper of the same name. With Sousa conducting, it was premiered by the U.S. Marine Band during the distribution of the essay prizes on the Smithsonian Museum grounds in Washington, D.C. The 6/8 march happened to be appropriate for a new dance called the two-step and soon became the most popular tune in both America and Europe. Although he received only $25 for its publication, Sousa was quickly inundated with requests for more marches. Of his 136 marches, ‘The Washington Post' and ‘The Stars and Stripes Forever’ have been the most widely known.’ -Program Notes for Band

This arrangement contains all the charm of the fully orchestrated march as well as dynamic and stylistic markings appropriate for the genre. The difficulty of ‘Washington Post’ is intermediate-advanced and the duration is 2:30.
