Product Description

According to the official U.S. Marine website, John Philip Sousa (1854-1932) composed the “Washington Post” march in 1889 to promote an essay contest sponsored by the newspaper of that name. It became the most popular tune in America and Europe and was adapted and became associated with the new dance craze of the era, the two-step. The title “March King” was given by a British journalist who remarked that since Johann Strauss was called the “waltz king”, Sousa deserved the march title.

This music has been arranged for clarinet choir by James Mack. It is scored for E-flat soprano clarinet, B-flat clarinets 1-3, alto clarinet, bass clarinet, and contrabass clarinet. Alternate (optional) parts for this clarinet choir arrangement have been included for Alto Clarinet (Clarinet 4 or Basset Horn), and E-flat contra-alto clarinet in place of the B-flat contrabass clarinet.
