Fantasy on a Theme by Sousa

By Andrew Boysen, Jr.

Concert band - Grade 3.5
Composed by Andrew Boysen, Jr. Bandworks. Score and set of parts. Published by Neil A. Kjos Music Company (KJ.WB342).

Item Number: KJ.WB342

Andrew Boysen based this fantasy on the opening bars of John Philip Sousa's 1908 march, "Fairest of the Fair." Snippets of the theme are disguised in the opening low brass chorale. Melodic fragments are tossed between instrumental sections, and the work closes with a triumphant return to the opening chorale melody.

    I play French Horn at my school, and our symphonic band preformed this at the state level. WOW! is all i have to say about this song. If executed properly this is a wonderful song. Even after months of practice, this did never get old or boring. By far one...

    of my favorite things to play! Still listen to this song at least once a week. Even though we practiced this every day for months. I would reccomend this song to anyone who is looking for a challenge and to have some fun. All around a great work!
