U.S. Field Artillery March by John Philip Sousa (1854-1932). Arranged by Brian Harris. For Concert Band. Intermediate. Set of Parts, Score. Published by Bandroom.com Publications (S0.8523).
"The joyous and fun U.S. FIELD ARTILLERY MARCH by John Philip Sousa will be the favorite of your band and audience alike - especially at the break strain where the band members break into song with the tune everyone knows. Pure excitement! For an even greater effect, have the brass section stand for the final repeat of the famous melody. This lightly-edited arrangement of Sousa's work remains true to the original in key and rhythms, but has modified (easier) ranges for most players. The bass line is now doubled throughout the low woodwinds, and the saxophone parts reorganized (the original published parts were inconsistently voiced). Instead of three clarinet and trumpet parts, it now has two with the second part having optional divisi notes. Also, the repeat of the first strain was removed and an optional cannon shot at the end was added. . . . . DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Medium. . . . . PROGRAMMING: about 2 minutes, 20 seconds in length; any Spring or Fall concert; ideal for use at Contest as a short march will save your players.
