Mikado March
Mikado March from The Complete Marches of John Philip Sousa: Vol. 2


Mikado March (1885)


The popularity of Sousa’s medley marches, which were based on themes of other composers, never approached that of his original compositions. Such was the case with the “Mikado March,” which utilized themes from the celebrated Gilbert and Sullivan operetta.
