Brass, Reeds, and Percussion: September 23, 2023

Some people consider fall to be football season. Band aficionados call it marching band season. WLRH is proud to sponsor the Rocket City Marching Contest hosted by Bob Jones High School Band and being held during the broadcast of this episode. This episode opens with the march that my high school band used for the years 1966, 1967, 1968, and 1969; namely, “March Grandioso.” The march was written by Roland Seitz, typically called the the Parade Music Prince. Once published, the march was extensively used in parades and uses the theme from the Liszt Hungarian Rhapsody No. 14.
