Obituary of Donald Stauffer, U.S. Navy Band Director, Retired.
The name Henry Fillmore is synonymous with great marches for band. The Rolling Thunder march is especially favored by low brass because that section is featured to such great effect. This new arrangement for two euphoniums and two tubas gives all players some interesting parts and creates an exciting piece for the audience as well.
The chosen key is the same as the band key, so players familiar with the band version will have an easy time reading this (well, more-or-less easy!).
