March 6, 2014 --
When it comes to the historical knowledge and performance of marches, the United States Marine Band could be considered a prime resource, especially for those written by John Philip Sousa.
That’s why during the month of March, “The President’s Own” will be hosting “Sousa’s March Mania,” a tournament pitting 32 marches against each other for the Marine Band online community to determine which one is the favorite.
Every day through April 4, marches will compete head to head while Marine Band friends and fans vote which ones advance in the tournament. Participants can visit the Marine Band website to listen to the competing marches, download and print a tournament bracket, and vote for favorites. The winners of “Sousa’s March Mania” will be named “The March King” for a day!
