A TRIBUTE TO JOHN PHILIP SOUSA

Feb 9, 2019

The CWE re-enacts the great tradition of the Concert Band in the Concert Hall fostered by America’s first professional band at the turn of the 20th Century – The John Philip Sousa Band!  Not only will the CWE sound like the Sousa Band, but we’ll look like it, too!  Plenty of fun with soloists, sing-alongs and pageantry and a special appearance by Gov. Bill Ritter as master of ceremonies!
