The Golden Age of the Concert Band

Hello everyone! Continuing in our Air Force birthday celebration, this week's New Music Tuesday release is The Golden Age of the Concert Band from the US Air Force Heritage of America Band. Featuring the works of John Philip Sousa and Edwin Franko Goldman among others, this album showcases the value of the modern concert band and also how the leadership, vision, and originality of these composers shaped the growth of the concert band by promoting a common ground for professional and student musicians across America. Even today, the music of the American Concert Band can still delight audiences of all ages!
