A Tribute to John Philip Sousa

The UNCG School of Music will sponsor “A Tribute to John Philip Sousa.” This turn-of-the-century band concert will feature Sousa's Band portrayed by the renowned UNCG Wind Ensemble; John Philip Sousa portrayed by Dr. John R. Locke, UNCG Director of Bands. Costumed in much the same manner as the world famous Sousa Band, the entire concert will be presented in the unique “Sousa style” - a mixture of classics, solos, and popular music with rapid-fire encores featuring Sousa's famous marches. This will be a non-stop evening of toe-tapping fun for the entire family!

Erika Boysen and Justin Worley, tuba, will be performing a fun novelty piece in this fun concert.
