Sousa's March Mania
When it comes to the historical knowledge and performance of marches, the United States Marine Band is considered a prime resource, especially for those written by John Philip Sousa. That's why during the month of March, "The President's Own" will be hosting "Sousa's March Mania," a tournament pitting 32 marches against each other for the Marine Band online community to determine which one is the favorite.
