Composer: Fillmore, Henry
Transcriber: Olcott, James L.
Number of Trumpets: 16
Key: F Major concert
Duration: 2 minutes and 50 seconds
One of Henry Fillmore's most famous and fun marches. Four B-flat piccolo trumpets, 10 B-flat trumpets, and two flugelhorns. Great fun to play. Two obligatos for the trio section are provided: Fillmore's original and a special trumpet obligato by the transcriber (the latter turns the difficulty rating to a 7, but what a challenge :-) The microphone icon on the left is the full recording with Fillmore's original obligato, which is a lot easier to play than it sounds. The microphone on the right is the trio section of the march with the trumpet obligato.
