This work is a traditional march written in the style of the renowned American composers Henry Fillmore, Karl King, and John Phillip Sousa. It incorporates all of the standard formal elements of the march, including first and second strains, the dogfight, and a trio that modulates to the key of the subdominant. In addition, the trio is embellished with an upper woodwind obbligato part that returns for the final grand statement. There is a wide variety of dynamics used, keeping with modern march interpretations.
