Marquette University March
Marquette University March from The Complete Marches of John Philip Sousa: Vol. 6


Marquette University March (1924)


On November 16, 1923, in recognition of what Sousa had done for his country in both peace and war, Marquette University bestowed upon him an honorary Doctor of Music degree. It was the first such degree given by that university. Sousa composed this march as an expression of his appreciation and presented the piano manuscript to the university.
