Live in Concert
The United States Marine Band has been part of the events that have shaped our national heritage for more than two centuries. This album, Live in Concert, is a representation of what would be heard at a typical United States Marine Band concert. The album contains many important works including Gustav Holst's Moorside March from A Moorside Suite, Charles Ives' Postlude in F, and Ralph Vaughan Williams' English Folk Song Suite. The United States Marine Band, led on this album by Colonel Timothy W. Foley, plays each piece beautifully and with great attention to detail. Other conductors on the album include Frederick Fennell, Gunther Schuller, and James Sinclair. As the Marine Band moves through its third century, it continues a tradition of excellence that earned it the title, "The Presidents Own." Whether performing at the White House, in public concerts or on recordings such as this, the music of the Marine Band is the music of America.
