Recently, the Marine Band discovered a technical error with the CD “Flourishes and Meditations” that precludes the recording from playing some or all tracks using certain media software on a PC, including Windows Media Player, iTunes (PC only), and foobar2000.  Alternative free media software for PC users that will play the CD includes RealPlayer®, VLC media player, and Exact Audio Copy. Media software on a Mac, such as iTunes, plays the CD in its entirety. The recording plays in a standalone CD player. The Marine Band apologizes for any inconvenience and if you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Marine Band Public Affairs Office at (202) 433-5809.
