    The Marine Band (President's Own) to release Vol. 1 Complete Marches of Sousa

    This months Marine Band News Letter (<-click to read) announced that the Marine Band will release the first volume of "The Complete Marches of John Philip Sousa", a multi-year recording project initiated by Marine Band Director Lt. Col. Jason K. Fettig.

This will be the Marine Band’s first comprehensive collection of Sousa’s marches since the release of “The Heritage of John Philip Sousa,” which was recorded under the baton of Lt. Col. Jack T. Kline from 1974-76 and released by Robert Hoe. Each volume of “The Complete Marches of John Philip Sousa“ will be available for free exclusively on the Marine Band website ( and the band’s YouTube channel (

    They now include at the down load the complete score and all parts. Time to learn these marches before our director brings them out (Centerville Community Band)!
