Start marching to a new destiny. From an original brass band musical by Michael Brand and Ian Chippandale, "March: Song of Socialism" is a rousing concert march sure to please any audience. This new arrangement by the composer is for full concert band.

In the Red is an original brass band musical by Michael Brand and Ian Chippendale. It is based on Robert Tressell's famous socialist novel, The Ragged-Trousered Philanthropists, which describes the trials and tribulations, the humour and the marriages of working-class life in Edwardian England. This powerful book has been allied to a powerful score and the show ends with the show's hero, Will Easton, exorting all the working men - painter and decorators - to embrace socialism and overthrow the bosses. In this Song of Socialism, the men start marching to a new destiny. It never happened in England of course, but it did elsewhere! The composer has now arranged this stirring march for Concert Band.
