Custom Chamber Music

Sousa Stars and Stripes Forever



This is the official national march of the United States. Sousa wrote lyrics for this march, but they are almost never used. The "alternate" lyrics of "be kind to your web-footed friends" were written by Charles Grean in 1954 and made famous by Mitch Miller (he used it as a closing number for his TV show).

This composition can be played by 2 different combinations of instruments.
