With the trio of "The Caissons Song", the "U.S. Field Artillery March" by John Phillip Sousa is one of his most recognizable marches. This arrangement by Rob Romeyn captures the spirit of the original, while being accessible to younger bands with limited instrumentation. Perfect for concert and festival use, this march also works very well for Memorial Day or Veterans Day performances. A very strong and solid march choice!
