The Great Escape March is the title theme from the classic motion picture of the same name. In the style of a true concert march, the opening is bold and bombastic, with the following segments a blend and balance of melodies flowing throughout the woodwinds and brasses. The final statement is the sound of a troop of soldiers marching off into the distance. Captivating! (2:19).

    A good effective arrangement of this classic. Instrumentation is such that half a band can still make it sound good. Around level 2.
