Thread: Sousa conducting the Marine Band at the White House

    Sousa conducting the Marine Band at the White House

    Nice but short video from a 1930 newsreel of Sousa conducting the Marine Band for President Hoover at the White House. Some nice views of American Baritones, and the sound is good enough that you can hear the quality of their sound.

    Not so much an animated director, eh?

    Reminds me of a smaller version of Col. Bourgeois.

    Those old horns got the job done.
